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!


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!

Are your kids restless after shopping? Get your errands done at San Tan Village, where you’ll find your favorite stores like Macy’s, Gymboree, Sephora, the Children’s Place, Fossil and Journey’s. After you’re done shopping, take the kids to the popular splash pad and play area where they can blow off steam and you can get off your feet!

Enjoy a dozen sprays that shoot water into the air at Eastmark’s 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!

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 splash pad at the Water Tower Park in Downtown Gilbert is a great way to play before or after a lunch at one of the popular kid-friendly hangouts like Liberty Market or Joe’s Real Barbecue! Bonus: The outdoor seating at Joe’s makes it feel more like a backyard cookout than a stuffy restaurant and there’s lots of room for the kids to run around and play. We love grabbing an ice cream cone at Petersen’s Ice Cream & Café after the kids play in the splash pad too; it makes for a perfect summer day.

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!
