This splash pad is very cool! There are benches for parents or they can join in the fun! One drawback is no shade to sit in so beware of how much time you spend. Pay attention and reapply sunscreen...

Great local park for kids to play in a "Splash Pad" type Waterpark. Very scenic with noce benches and tables for parents and family to watch. A few hundred years from silver beach and Silver Beach Pizza for fun on the beach or a few bites to eat! Would recommend for younger family with kids 3-14! Enjoy and learn a few facts about the Whirlpool corporation!
My grandson especially loves it here. It was nice to rinse the sand off in the spring, before the showers at the beach were open.
