Splash Pads

If you’re looking for a place for the kids to run and play while cooling off, check out these areas that are sure to be a splashing good time! Some splashpads are within walking distance of plenty of restaurants so you can dine-in or order to-go for a picnic while the kids play.

WATERWAY SQUARE

Grandma's Purse is a functional piece of public art located in Waterway Square. The water feature created by nationally acclaimed mosaic artist Dixie Friend Gay adds a treasure hunt aspect for children as they seek and find all the hidden treasures that have fallen from Grandma's Purse.

CREEKSIDE PARK VILLAGE GREEN

If you are near the back of The Woodlands or just finished a hike at The George Mitchell Nature Preserve, head over to the splash pad at Creekside Park Village Green! The area offers a shaded space with seating to get out of the sun and plenty of room for the kids to run, play, and cool off. Along with the splash pad, there’s also an all-weather turf field that has become a popular place for a game of catch or flag football among families. With several local restaurants nearby along with dessert options, this is a perfect picnic spot to splash and play.

MARKET STREET

Another great area for kids to cool off is the splash pad at Market Street. Mom and Dad can take turns shopping while the children continue playing uninterrupted! Located in the center of Market Street at Central Park it’s easy to get to and surrounded by several shopping and dining options. Throughout the year Market Street hosts many events including concerts and car shows to keep the entire family entertained while the kids play. Here are a few more tips to enjoy your trip to Market Street.
