Update 6-7-17: The Splash Pad is now open! After June 7, admission will be $2 per person. Children ages 2 and under will be free.
Here’s some Forced Family Fun that will be open in time for the summer season. Construction work is underway on a new splash pad amenity at Swift-Cantrell Park in Kennesaw!
Pictured below is a conceptual rendering of the splash pad, which is designed to mist, spray and soak families and children of all ages and abilities. This is just a sampling as it will be more than 3,000 square feet.
This park is also known for its very popular Skatepark facilities. If you haven’t seen the skatepark, it is a 40,000 square feet, concrete skate park that incorporates a unique combination of street, pool and flow bowl elements that will challenge skateboarders of all skill levels.
This splash pad project is a joint effort between the City of Kennesaw and Cobb County and is expected to open in June. Funding is from the 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
Also in Kennesaw Park news is a 1.8 million Aviation-themed public park and green space coming to the area at Cobb Place Boulevard and Barrett Lakes Boulevard.
We’ll post updates on both projects as new information becomes available.
