Welcome back to Splash! At Lively Park

Join us for a slip down the slide, a paddle in the pool, and more at this indoor water park in Springfield, Oregon. With family changing rooms, a kiddie pool for little swimmers, and a spa for adults, it’s an outing the whole family can enjoy. 

Splash!  will be closed the morning of Thursday, Oct. 22, as a water line outside the building is repaired. We anticipate being back open by noon.

FAQs:

What sanitation protocols are you taking?
Extra staff on each shift will also help with daily sanitizing during the day. Willamalane teams have introduced enhanced sanitation protocols including a full decontamination every night after close and in the middle of each day. We have also replaced all amenities that can be touched in the locker rooms with touchless options, including faucets, toilets, and paper towels.
  
What major differences will there be?
We have implemented new reservation procedures, one-way traffic flow, scan in and scan out procedures, sanitation protocols, and are offering limited programming and amenities to start. 

Do I have to wear a mask? Will employees?
All staff members and patrons are required to wear masks when not in the water. 

Do you have senior hours?
There are no senior hours at Splash. At Willamalane Park Swim Center, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. are reserved for those 50 and older and other high-risk individuals.

Can I just drop in for swimming/exercise on your own?
No, you must register in advance.

What do I need to bring with me?

Will locker rooms be available? 
Locker rooms will be available, however, locker use will not be allowed. Swimmers can change, shower, and use the restrooms, but must plan to bring their items to the pool deck rather than use shared lockers.

At this time, we are not allowing drop-in shower use.

Will water park and rec swims be open?
At this time, we are not offering water park or rec swims. Instead, we have introduced a limited family swim time. We are accepting reservations for up to 25 individuals at a time. Patrons who arrive together will receive arm bands to identify each as separate groups so proper distancing between groups can be maintained. As we progress and learn more about what we can safely offer, we may be able to expand programs like these.

Yes, the slide is open for people who sign up for a family swim. However, social distancing in the slide line will be required.
