Riverview Splash Pad opens for summer!


The Riverview Splash Pad (1101 Martin Luther Jr. Drive) will open for the summer season this Saturday (May 25) and will remain open until the end of September.

The splash pad will be active from 10:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. every day during the summer. The splash pad can be turned on during these hours by rubbing the silver activator pad located on the wall between the restrooms.

The splash pad is a zero-depth aquatic play structure that allows children to experience different types of water environments. Because the splash pad is a zero-depth facility, it does not have a lifeguard on duty, so all children must be supervised during their visit.

Features of the splash pad include surface water jets, a snake head water spray, run-through loops with water jets, rotating water cannons, water buckets and a palm tree with water jets.

Each of the picnic shelters adjacent to the splash pad can be reserved by clicking on the CivicRec link in the ConnectKingsport app or by going to and clicking on the “CivicRec” link, then searching for “outdoor rentals” in the search bar. You can also reserve the shelters through the Kingsport Parks and Recreation Department by calling 423-224-2489 or 423-343-9723.

The rentals are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.visit this link to Kingsport Parks and Recreation to rent a shelter.
