CLOSED for the Season - Reason: Freezin!

The Splash Pad is closed for the winter. FYI: The Gymnasium is closed on Sundays. Saturday the hours are 10 am -4 pm. We will try to update these hours as they change.

Next to happen will be Winter Basketball League tournaments. Sorensen will host two of the games and watching is a lot of fun. From the youngest learning to the seasoned teenagers. We have a snack bar in the lobby of the gymnasium. The food is inexpensive- we haven’t raised our prices in 16 years. Most items are $1.00 or less.

On March 15, 16 and 17 Friends of the Park will sponsor the Carnival featuring Schoeppner Shows. . We will have our snack bar for the carnival. The rides cost money- but having them come out here is a treat!

Then Easter Egg Hunt, the Color Run, Cinco de Mayo - get ready for another terrific year.

Call the park at 661-264-1249 and talk to a recreational leader for additional program information.

The Splash Pad is closed for the Winter Season.

We look forward to the opening of the Splash Pad in 2019 when the weather is warmer!
