During the Play Xenia process, the City reached out and asked citizens what types of park and recreation improvements they would like to see. One of the most-requested amenities was a splash pad, otherwise known as a sprayground. It’s a zero-depth area filled with interactive water sprayers and fountains. Splash pads are sought-after in many communities, and Xenia is fortunate to have one!
Xenia Station is the site of Xenia’s first-ever splash pad, along with a newly revamped and relocated dry playground and an improved bike path connection to the Ohio-to-Erie Trail. These amenities are located near the caboose and recently renovated picnic shelter. The shelter is available for reservation for a fee.
The City also completed a second picnic shelter at the west end of the property. This new shelter is available for free on a first-come, first-serve basis.
