My kids loved this splash pad. It is pretty big, close to the beach, and got them soaked! Their favorite part was when the fountains would go down, and the cannons would begin to shoot water into the center. All the kids (and even the adults) run into the center to get ready for that.

I got to hang out on a bench and watch the soaked chaos. As others have stated, there is no shade to be found, which is the only drawback. So if you are there on a sunny day, put on the sunscreen and bring plenty of water!

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 every so often as it gets washed off.

Very good splash pad. Took a 10 year old there to cool off on a very hot summer day and she really enjoyed it! However, be advised, there is absolutely NO SHADE WHATSOEVER at this location and we baked in the sun at temps of over 90 degrees!
An fairly large area with ample shade needs to be added here for sure!

We've been to a lot of splash pads, and this is one of the best ones. The canons are impressive and the kids had a great time. Friday night there was an outdoor movie in the adjacent park which was pretty awesome.

When this is open (closed to COVID) this is a fun break from the beach and also an option to wash the sand off!

This is probably a nice splash pad for people to enjoy during summertime, but I visited after Labor Day when the place was empty. There’s not much to see or do here in the off-season, to be honest. Props to the city for keeping the park around it well-landscaped even after the summer season is over, but this fountain – and the whole Silver Beach area at the foot of the bluff, to be honest – could benefit from some creative ideas on how to use the space in the off-season.

Excellent alternative to the beach if the waves are too rough. This is fun for big kids and little ones.

My grandkids had the best time playing in the fountain. They played for over an hour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Best part it was free! Highly recommend it for a family on a budget!

My grandson had so much fun. He would of stayed all day. For myself the water was so cold. Parking was close by. To have something free 😉 is amazing.
