You wanted it, you got it! Splash Pad Central!

Firstly, all of these Splash Pads (also known as spray pads, splash parks, I could go on..) are Public Parks. There are a few that people might mention that are private-i.e. HOA owned and only for the residents there. Please make sure that you are either a guest of a resident before you frequent those.

Be Prepared for a Splashpad!

I also suggest a few things when you go to the splash pads-Water shoes. There are a lot of splash pads that have concrete floors (UGH!) and can become slippery when wet  Lather up with Sunscreen, even bring your own chair. Kids love having buckets and watering cans too.
