Free Indianapolis Area Splash Pads and Spray Parks

Free Indianapolis Area Splash Pads and Spray Parks

Indianapolis has the best splash pads and spray parks! We also probably more splash pads than any city I’ve ever visited. A splash park is typically a concrete pad with motion activated sensors that release streams of water, fountains and mists for kids to “walk” through. Sometimes they are referred to as sprinkler parks.

Throughout the day you’ll hear squeals of delight and surprise as the patterns shift and soak unsuspecting children (and adults). Indianapolis area sprinkler parks are unmonitored and without a lifeguard at all times so please be sure to watch over your own kids.
