Here are a few things to know about the splash pads:  

  • Be aware that there may be times that the chemical cycle and splash pad will be temporarily inactive for 15 to 20 minutes as the system catches up. If a splash pad is not working, please call 361-777-4550 or 361-777-4683. This is the fastest way for us to determine if there is an issue and to address it. (We love social media too, but if you want answers quickly, please call us.) 
  • For issues with the splash pad after 5:00 PM and on the weekends call 361-777-4444. 
  • The splash pads are popular, however, to keep them safe and fun for everyone, please place all trash and diapers in the trash cans provided. Discarded diapers in the play areas and parking lots can pose a risk to other children who play at the park.
