Lions Splash Pad Details:
Lions Splash Pad is located in Collins Park which is in the heart of Scotia, NY. It is best described as a fountain with no standing water. For decades, Collins Park had a public beach that many people enjoyed; however, flooding from Hurricane Irene in 2011 has prevented the lake from re-opening.
The $85,000 project was the largest the in the Scotia-Glenville Club’s history. It is roughly 2000 sqft of concrete that gets sprayed with a foot-activated button in 2 areas that turn each area on for 4 minutes. The water jets cycle on and off with choreography and are simply off when nobody is using it.
In addition to the Lions Splash Pad, Collins Park has numerous amenities during the Summer. Boat rentals and public fishing (with boat access) allow access to Collins Lake. Weekly free Summer Concerts in Freedom Park are only 500ft away. Nearly docks on the Mohawk River has overnight hookup allowed for a small fee. Lastly Lions Pavilion is available for large parties or events – contact Village Hall for rental.
