The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department announced the opening of the Brentwood Splash Park in partnership with the city of Brentwood on July 16 at the Indoor Sports Complex located at 920 Heritage Way.


The water park is measured at over 10,000 square feet and includes four slides, a series of ground and ring sprays, a 100-gallon dump bucket and four platforms with sprays, according to a release from the department.

“We are thankful in Brentwood for our continued partnership with Williamson County,” Brentwood Mayor Rhea Little said in the release. “The splash pad is another excellent example of a recreational venue that provides fitness opportunities, especially for children. These amenities continue to enhance the quality of life in Brentwood.”


The splash park will be open to the public on July 17 and will have operating hours seven days a week, with admission prices set at $4 for adults and $2 for children and seniors. Admission will be limited for a time due to coronavirus concerns, and social distancing practices will be required.
