Splash into Summer: Top 5 Splash Pads in City Limitless®

Now that summer vacation is right around the corner, it’s time to pull out all the stops for ideas of how to keep the kids busy while keeping parents sane!


While parks are cleaned and maintained on a regular basis, restrooms and hand washing stations may not be available

Have fun and get the kids out of the hotel room with one of the many splash pads here in City Limitless®.

Riverview Park is known for its amazing playground with a 50 feet tall Genesis climbing tower and a 60 feet long mesh rope climbing structure (see a cool video of it here), but it’s also home to a spectacular splash pad! Enjoy their spray ground, open seven days a week, 10 a.m.- 10 p.m. You can even make an afternoon of it and enjoy lunch at a shaded picnic table after the kids splash around for a bit!

Enjoy a dozen sprays that shoot water into the air at the Eastmark Great Park Splash Pad near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Adults can relax in large Adirondack chairs in the shade while the kids have fun in the sun!

Cool off at Pioneer Park! You won't want to miss the 15 foot water wall and splash pad. Explore the historical steam locomotive, then head to Downtown Mesa for a bite to eat! Going in the fall? Stay for Mesa Feastival Forest, a Food Truck Festival every Saturday night!

Founders’ Park in Queen Creek takes splash pads to the next level. Here, kids can play with water cannons, mushrooms and more as they explore the 4,000-square-foot water playground. Open each year from March to October, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the weather, whether it’s Spring Break or summer vacation.

The shipwreck themed splash pad at Mansel Carter Oasis Park is ARGG-uably one of the best around! Queen Creek's newest and largest park pulls out all the stops for this water retreat. After splashing around, make time to take in the views of the 5 acre lake and waterfall, and post up for a leisurely lunch at one of the 8 shaded ramadas.

We hope your kids have fun splashing around in City Limitless®. Don’t forget the sunscreen! Capture the memories you make and share them on social media using #MesaCityLimitless!
