Red Hill & Splash Pad

Sharp Memorial Park on Red Hill

Sharp Memorial Park is located at Red Hill and features our splash pad, play structure, pavilion, scenic overlook of the Canadian River, and the infamous Red Hill Stairs build by the WPA in 1939!

Splash Pad Temporary Closure

July 15th, 2022

Due to vandalism of our irrigation system in a failed attempt to turn on the splash pad last night, we will be shutting off all water at Sharp Memorial Park until further notice.  The splash pad, restrooms, and irrigation systems will all be disabled until the city-wide water conservation issues are resolved.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

July 12th, 2022

Efforts continue to restore water to everyone in Purcell. We will be keeping the splash pad off and are disabling all irrigation systems in the parks until further notice. Restrooms will still be open.

Splash Pad

Our splash pad was constructed in 2015 with the help of a grant from TSET (Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust).  Parks & Recreation generally opens the splash pad and restrooms in the first half of April, and closes them in the later half of October.  Operating hours are 7:00am to 11:00pm during the open season.


Our playground is for kids 2 to 5 with adult supervision, and kids 6 to 12!

Red Hill Pavilion

The Red Hill Pavilion gives the most amazing scenic view of the Canadian River Valley and Conger Field.

Red Hill Stairs

Constructed in 1939 by the WPA (Works Progress Administration), the Red Hill Stairs offer a challenge to anyone looking to get a strenuous workout, or just a scenic access from the top of Red Hill to Conger Field below.
