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!

1. Riverview Park

Mesa's newest park has been transformed into a premier recreation destination for families to enjoy. The park features a five-acre urban fishing lake, splash pad with multiple water features, a 50 Genesis climbing tower, miles of accessible sidewalks, plenty of shaded picnic areas and so much more. The park is free to the public and home to Sloan Park (formerly Cubs Park).

2. Eastmark Great Park

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!

3. Pioneer Park

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!

4. Founders’ Park

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.

5. Mansel Carter Oasis Park

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.
