Kill Devil Hills has had many “firsts.” It’s home to the world’s first flight, and in Dare County, the first to have a disc golf course, a fully accessible beach access, and now a splash pad!

Make arrangements to join the Town of Kill Devil Hills in celebration of another first at the grand opening of the splash pad at Meekins Field Park on Thursday, August 3, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.

The event will include a welcome and ribbon cutting from the Town’s Board of Commissioners. Following the cutting of the ribbon, it will be “game on” as the water begins to flow from the Splash Pad and its features. Be sure to wear your bathing suit or water clothes to partake in the fun.

Event attendees will also be provided with free snowballs from Island Snowball Company, free hotdogs grilled by Town staff, and Kill Devil Hills giveaways to commemorate this special occasion.

Meekins Field Park is located at 1634 North Croatan Highway in Kill Devil Hills. More information about the splash pad can be found on the Town’s website.
