About the Splash
What is the Splash?
The Silver Lake Splash is a beach party fundraiser. There are kid carnival games, bounce house, dunk tank, face painting, silent auction, cash raffle, live music, food vendors, crafts and community information.
The fire department brings their fire truck and they spray water during the whole event to help stay cool. So dress your kiddos is swim attire, bring a towel and have fun! The beach is open too so make it a fun swim time as well!
You purchase tickets to participate in games and activities. All the money goes right to the Splash Beach Fund which helps pay to keep lifeguards on the beach.
This event draws from 1500-3000 people every year! Are you one of them?!

How did this all get Started?
In 2009 the city of North St. Paul almost closed Silver Lake Beach due to budgeting constraints. Residents banned together and petitioned the City to keep the beach open and staffed with lifeguards. North St. Paul has a small town feel, yet is located inside the 494/694 loop of the Twin Cities. What makes the small town feel is the historic downtown area, the parks and recreation and the beach. The beach brings swells of children in the summertime for laughter and fun in a safe environment. Additionally, the beach adds value to the properties near and around the lake and draws young families to purchase homes in NSP.
