HCCVB hosts event at Splash Island

Facility prepares for season’s end



 “We’ve heard lots of great comments about it this summer,” said Clay Chafin, Plainfield’s director of parks and recreation. “It’s a great family attraction, too, since families can float together down the river.”

Since children are heading back to school, Splash Island will cut its hours beginning next week.

“School starts in Plainfield on Aug. 8, but that doesn't mean the heat will go away,” said Chafin. “Being open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights will give people a chance to cool off in the evenings. This summer has been a hot one, even in the evenings. We don’t anticipate that will change. We also hope the reduced prices will enable even more families to come enjoy the amenities we have here at Splash Island.”

The Endless Summer Nights & Weekends schedule will have the facility open from 5 to 9 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The weekend schedule remains the same with the park being open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.

There is a price reduction with the new hours. Plainfield residents will be admitted for $4.75 and non-residents for $6.50.

The Endless Summer Nights & Weekends will continue through Labor Day, Sept. 3. Hours will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Labor Day.

The park will then close for humans but will re-open for the Puppy Pool Party for dogs on Sept. 8 and 9. More information on that event will be available soon.

The indoor pool at the Plainfield Recreation Center will be closed for its annual maintenance Aug. 13 to 17.

“The shutdown gives us time to do deep cleaning we can’t do otherwise,” said Chafin. “In addition, we’ll be redoing the locker room floors in both the men’s and women’s areas with a new epoxy coating. Upstairs we’re converting a storage room into an additional fitness room.
