Carbondale Splash Park
The Carbondale Park District maintains seven parks and an indoor pool for public use. In the spring of 2016, a “splash park” – Outdoor Aquatic Center opened in the “Superblock area” adjacent to Carbondale Community High School. The park features a lazy river, splash areas, competition lanes and slides. This is in addition to the “spray park” the Park District opened in 2010 at Attucks Park.
The funds for the project were made available from federal stimulus money distributed through IDNR. In order to receive this money, the Carbondale Park District had to raise a match of at least 25% of the total cost of the project from the southern Illinois community. The fund-raising goal was $900,000.
The SuperBlock occupies a significant section of property located between both the new Carbondale Middle School, located on Grand Avenue, and the new Carbondale Community High School, located on Giant City Road. This property is held in partnership between the Park District, the City of Carbondale, and the Carbondale Middle and High School Districts. This intergovernmental partnership is unique among Illinois cities and is a point of pride for our residents who agree that this location is the most reasonable, accessible, and convenient for an Outdoor Aquatic Center.
