Kids from Happy Valley love going to the park. In the summer, the splash pad is a popular place to cool off. The splash pad opens on the Saturday before Memorial Day and stays open through Labor Day. There is no standing water, instead streams, sprays, and showers for kids to splash and play. A drinking fountain and restroom are located close to the splash pad for visitors’ convenience. Kids can also have a blast and get their wiggles out on the playground, teeter totters, and swings.

Adults should get a group together to play basketball, tennis, volleyball, or horseshoes. Pack a picnic to enjoy in the shade. If you’re planning a party, consider holding it at the park. Reservations must be made in person and are very affordable, especially for Happy Valley residents. There are three covered picnic areas, two of which have barbecues and electricity.
