Adventures for Kids

Redmond is proud of its abundant kid-friendly activities and inclusive hometown feel. 

Part of Redmond's hometown appeal is the fact that the community strives to be inclusive to people of all ages and abilities. Family is important and by strengthening family bonds through activities, events and experiences, you're ultimately strengthening the community as a whole.

The Splash Park located at Centennial Park is one of Redmond’s most popular features for kids and adults alike.  Operational in the summer months, at any given time during a hot summer's day, you'll find dozens of kids smiling with delight, as they playfully dodge rhythmical jets of water.  The laughter and smiles are contagious, so beware, you might just start giggling uncontrollably.

Also during the warm-weather months, kids 14 and under can enjoy free fishing at Redmond's Fireman's Pond.  This beloved community pond is stocked each year by the Redmond Fire Department and has created countless memories.  Can you remember the day you caught your first fish?

If your child enjoys activities that border a little more on the extreme, then check out the BMX Park (at the High Desert Sports Complex) and the Redmond Skate Park.  These two activities are wildly popular with the kids. Be safe out there, and don’t forget your protective equipment and sufficient guidance for the little ones.

For the young explorers in your family, take a quick drive out to the Redmond Caves, conveniently located on the east side of town on Airport Way between 6th and 13th — no spelunking experience necessary. The caves are relatively simple to access and are not too deep, though a good flashlight is needed to help light your way.

During the colder winter months — and just across the street from Centennial Park — the Redmond Ice Skating Rink draws a jubilant crowd of children, teens and families.
