Salt City Splash Aquatic Center

Splash into summer at Salt City Splash Aquatic Center, Hutchinson’s deluxe water park! This 6-acre water park is located in the heart of Carey Park and features a tiny tot pool for babies and toddlers as well as a shallow water pool with zero-depth entry, a slide structure, and several splash toys.

Two large slides – a 141-foot flume slide and an 89-foot twisty tube slide – dump into a catch pool area. The large, 50-meter pool includes 1- and 3-meter diving boards, lap lanes for adult fitness swimming, basketball goals, a 20-foot drop slide, and large floating toys.

The Splash is ideal for hosting birthday parties and can also be rented out for larger events, reunions, and parties. 

The Aquatic Center can be rented for special events.
