Make a Splash at Stewart Park!

We’re building a bigger, better, interactive, and accessible splash pad!

A fundraising campaign for Friends of Stewart Park

Do you remember playing in the Stewart Park Splash Pad?

Will your children have this as a fond memory?

The fountain is nearly 70 years old and ready for an overhaul so the next generation can make more memories.

Friends of Stewart Park is raising $25,000 toward the cost of the new splash pad.

The new design will feature a flush accessible surface, timed shut off, push button start, interactive fountains and overhead sprinklers, and an embedded mural of the Finger Lakes.  

Make a Splash.

Make a Memory.

FSP's Make a Splash Campaign will be ongoing through September to reach our ultimate goal of $50,000. Thanks to our July Sponsor, Purity Ice Cream!

About the Organization

Friends of Stewart Park

Ithacans are incredibly fortunate to have the beautiful public park overlooking Cayuga Lake. Now, the Friends of Stewart Park and the City of Ithaca, with generous support from the Park Foundation and the community, are leading an effort to revitalize and enhance the park for its Centennial Celebration on July 4, 2021. Key projects include building a new and inclusive playground and sprayplay area; having successfully restoring the Picnic “Large” Pavilion; developing a museum space, park center and café in the historic Wharton, Inc. Studio building with WSM; and creating the Renwick Plaza, a performance space with a lake overlook between the pavilions.
