New Kokosing Splash Park



Be sure to stop in and visit the brand-new Kokosing Splash Park, located at 69 N. Main Street, in Fredericktown. The park consists of a 1,200 square foot splash pad, public restrooms, decorative retaining walls, artificial turf, tables and seats with shade umbrellas, park benches, new landscaping, new decorative street and security lighting, new sidewalks, a totally reconstructed parking lot, and much more – all at no cost to the local taxpayers!
The park will be open to the public Memorial Day Weekend, pending a state inspection.
Kokosing Splash Park was made possible through hundreds of generous individual and corporate contributions from donors throughout Knox County and beyond. With the oversight of the Knox County Foundation, the Splash Park was built at no cost to the local taxpayers. The Village’s Service Department and the Fredericktown Recreation District will partner in operating and maintaining the Splash Park.
In order to keep patrons of all ages safe, we ask that all users of the park abide by these simple rules, which are posted at the park. The following is an overview of the rules:
  • In case of an emergency, use the Red Emergency Phone located on the left front side of building to call for help.
  • There is no facility supervision, so minors must be supervised, and parent/guardian is responsible for the behavior of their children.
  • No running, rough play, or fighting.
  • No food or drink allowed on splash pad water area.
  • Children who are not toilet trained must wear a swim diaper.
  • Do not drink the splash pad water.
  • No smoking, vaping, tobacco, or alcohol in the park.
  • Animals, bicycles, skateboards, and motorized vehicles are prohibited in the park.
  • Please clean your area and put trash in containers prior to leaving.
  • Please be considerate and share with others, as seating is limited.
  • Failure to obey rules may result in a loss of park privileges and may even result in temporary closure of the park.
Please help us keep the park safe and secure for patrons of all ages. We will continue to provide updates with more information regarding the park in the future. We are looking forward to seeing the community enjoy Kokosing Park for decades to come!
