Ready to make a splash?
Madison Visionary Partners is spearheading a campaign to bring a community splash pad to the City of Madison.
In August of 2023, city leaders gave MVP the green light to begin fundraising for a community splash pad. During a community-wide parks and recreation survey conducted in May, a community splash pad was the most requested amenity.
With 28 percent of our city's population under the age of 18, we think it is an appropriate time to add this family-friendly park to our city. Splash pads are also beneficial to our local economy. Families can stay in our city limits and spend local dollars instead of driving to other cities to visit a splash pad.
If you would like to support this project, you can donate securely online by clicking the donate button below. We have some legacy-level gifts that will be honored on a wall at the park.
We also plan to sell bricks as part of this campaign in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why doesn’t Madison already have a splash pad?
The City has prioritized acquiring green space and has purchased almost 100 acres of land over the last couple of years. We now have the space for one!
When will the splash pad work start?
MVP is kickstarting a campaign to bring a splash pad to Madison and the Witches Ride is this project’s first fundraiser.
The City of Madison has given MVP the green light to begin fundraising. The splash pad is in the very early stages of planning by the City and proper approvals need to take place before a timeline can be established. All that being said, we are committed to working with the City to make this project a reality!
Where will the splash pad be located?
The City of Madison Parks and Recreation will determine the best place for the new splash pad within Madison City limits, however there is a preferred location at newly acquired Sunshine Oaks Farm off of Moses Chapel. This space has the infrastructure to support the project, as well as space for ample parking.
Will the splashpad be free?
Yes. It will be free and open to the public.
Will the water be clean?
Yes. Madison Parks & Rec will maintain the splashpad water and test it regularly to be sure the chlorinated and pH levels are balanced. That said, this water is for playing, not drinking, and kids should be discouraged from doing so by their families.
Will there be shade by the splashpad? How big will it be? Will it be fenced in?
Yes, there will be shade! In this early stage of planning, there are no final renderings of the splashpad, but those will be created as we get closer to meeting our fundraising goal. MVP will release any renderings when they are complete.
