Wilder Bluff

The last day of operation for the Wilder Bluff splash pad will be Sunday, September 26th. Thank you for a great first season!

Wilder Bluff features over 40 acres of parkland with a unique treetop canopy playground, hillside slide and a natural themed sprayground. The park will open on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021. The park has a 1.38 mile trail, natural grasses and a patio overlook. The Wilder Bluff shelter includes a fireplace and a buffet ledge with power outlets. 

Wilder Bluff is dedicated to the citizens of Shawnee who by vote approved the Parks and Pipes sales tax. The Parks and Pipes sales tax fully funded this project. Your continued support of park and recreation initiatives has allowed the city to create opportunities for the community to Explore, Engage and Connect.
