Austin-Area Splash Pads

You can’t beat a day of fun at one of Austin’s FREE splash pads! Pack a picnic or some snacks, bring some water toys – buckets and shovels work well if there’s also a sandy area near by as well.

Note: Be sure to check online for any closures as the splash pads often close randomly for maintenance. The good news: if one is closed, we have so many to choose from in Austin that the next one is still close enough. Happy splashing!
