You can find splash pads at Aberdeen Park, Alger Park, Campau Park, Cherry Park, Fuller Park, outside the Gerald R. Ford Academic Center, Heartside Park, Highland Park, Joe Taylor Park, Lincoln Park, Mary Water Park, Mulick Park, Roosevelt Park and Wilcox Park. Splash pads are free.

Among the places that will be closed will be all nonemergency offices and departments, the Butterworth yard waste drop-off site and all library branches. Everything will be back open as usual on Tuesday.

Additionally, trash and recycling pickup will be delayed one day during the holiday weekend, with Monday pickups pushed back to Tuesday and so on. Friday pickups will happen Saturday.
