Tempe Town Lake Splash Playground, Tempe, Arizona
620 N Mill Ave, Tempe, Arizona 85281| Map |
The splash playground at Tempe Town Lake puts an educational spin on water activities by taking on a rainstorm theme. Splashing around in a sunny-day ''storm,'' kids learn how water goes from cloud to raindrop to ocean and back again.

Tips for Families
The entrance to the playground is a metal circle of clouds that rain a light mist of water onto visitors. Thunder claps and lightning flashes. Waterfalls turn into streams and water rushes into canals. Children can enjoy running through the ocean and riding toy whales. Boat tours on the lake are available by reservation for an additional fee.

Great place to cool off!Flag review
We visited here because we were visiting the Phoenix area during an extremely hot time of the year. We were on a budget and we wanted to do some fun, local, inexpensive things with the kids. I researched and found this place on the website sort of by accident. We put it on our list of things to do before we left the area. We had a little bit of trouble finding it at first, but we just drove across the bridge and found free parking and the park very easily. I liked the fact that there were life guards on duty to keep the park safe and fun for kids of all ages. The park was busy, but there was plenty of fun for everyone and it didnt seem over crowded. We would definately come here again when we are in the area.
Tips for Families
They do also have sunscreen at the lifeguard station just in case you forget yours. Pack a lunch and make a day of it. It also looked like a great spot for parties.
