If you’re searching for splash pads near me in north fort worth, Keller, Colleyville, Southlake, Grapevine, Haltom City, Watauga, and other surrounding Tarrant County cities…look no further!

We basically live at these area splash pads and spray grounds in the summer months. Splash pads are my favorite way to cool down in the Texas triple digit heat.

These splash pads are the perfect water feature for small children, because they can still cool off, without the safety concerns of a swimming pool or lake.

My other favorite thing about splash pads? They are FREE! The best fun and frugal summer activity I could possibly come up with!

Pack up your picnic basket, grab some towels, and a cooler, and head out to these parks to cool down and enjoy free summer fun!

Your kids…and your budget…will thank you!

  1. What is the best free splash pad in fort Worth and what is the cheapest waterpark?


hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
