Chestnut Park, located at 1404 East 16th Street, offers a fun playground and water feature for kids to enjoy. This splash pad is open seasonally from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily, however, because the water play feature does not recirculate water it must be closed during drought watering restrictions. According to the Austin Parks Foundation website, “Improvements to the splash pad to alleviate this problem are in design phase.”
Since the splash pad is frequently not operational, you may want to call the City of Austin Aquatics Division at 512-974-9331 before heading over there. Press “0” to speak to the operator, and if nobody answers press “0” again, when asked to enter a mailbox number.
Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.
