The Village Park Play Area in Menomonee Falls is now open for play! The Splash Pad will open in the Summer of 2023.
The 12,000+ square foot Village Park play area and splash pad were made possible through a fundraising campaign led by the Optimist Club of Menomonee Falls which started in 2021.
The park has been redeveloped as a community destination for events and family fun. You’ll find a multi-leave playground and play hill, a wheelchair-friendly merry-go-round, sensory stations, and more.
Street parking is plentiful and you can park in the Village Park parking lot.
Fiddleheads Coffee is located across the street for an after-play snack and pick-me-up.
A first phase of improvements at Village Park added an amphitheater, multi-purpose plaza, and great lawn in 2020.
The second phase of improvements at Village Park (constructed in 2022) included the accessible play area and splash pad, tennis and pickleball courts, a picnic shelter, a paved trail loop, and a new parking area.
In 2023, Village Park will host dozens of community events including the Falls Sunset Concert Series, Menomonee Falls Farmers Market, Lavender Festival, Falls Family Movie Nights, National Night Out, Downtown Beer Garden, Falls Kids Festival, and more.
To date, the Club’s Discover Village Park Campaign has raised over $1.1 million in contributions to the project from local businesses, families, and community organizations.
Leading contributors to the fundraising campaign include Milwaukee Tool ($200,000), Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin ($150,000), and Kohl’s ($100,000).
These generous donations are recognized with naming rights signage on the performance stage, play area, and splash pad.
Major gifts were also made on behalf of the Optimist Club of Menomonee Falls, Greater Menomonee Falls Foundation, and dozens of Falls families, businesses, and non-profit partners. Plaques and signs throughout Village Park recognize all donations exceeding $1,000.
