With heat of summer comes the desire for the community to cool off with some fun water activities. Coming June 20, Fishers Parks and Recreation will be holding its third annual Monsoon Madness for residents to bring their kids and enjoy this inflatable waterpark.

Located in Holland Park, Monsoon Madness will feature a variety of water activities for kids to enjoy.

“It’s a day where people can get out and enjoy sort of a waterpark that we built at Holland Park,” Fishers Parks Director Tony Elliot said. “We’ve got seven giant inflatable waterslides and different water features that people can climb and slide on. We basically just build a waterpark at Holland Park.”

Each year, Monsoon Madness has grown in popularity, bringing more and more families to this community event. There will be food available as well as music provided by a DJ.

“Definitely over a thousand people will come out,” Elliot said. “This year Kona Ice is coming out and we’ll have a pizza food truck onsite as well, so just a great day for families and kids to celebrate the summer and enjoy this waterpark.”

Kids of all ages are welcome, with a kids section available for the younger children.

“We have a kids’ area for kids four and under so they can be a little bit separate from the big kids that might get a little wild,” Elliot said. “It’s a little bit smaller features, and then the five and over [section]your kids can go down the slides.”

Kids can also enjoy the new playground and brand new Splash Pad at Holland Park as well.

The event will last from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be located at the softball diamond in the park. Entry is free to the public.
