Splash Park Summer 2017 In August of 2013, thanks to the generosity of Lear Corporation and support from the City of Detroit, the Palmer Park Splash Park replaced the non-functional pool on the west side of the park, which had been closed for many years. Open during the summer months, the splash park is motion-censored and will be programmed to turn on at 10:00 am, and automatically shut off at 10:00 pm, when Palmer Park closes.
Location: On west side of the park off Merrill Plaisance, between McNichols and 7 Mile Rds.
