Splash Pads are the best on a hot summer day. We really love splash pads for young kids because they are safer than the swimming pool. I even enjoy splashing at the splash pad! Utah is full of splash pads, thank goodness, since it gets quite toasty here in the summer. We put together a list of 11 Splash Pads in Utah County that are a lot of fun.
Adventure Heights : Spanish Fork
This is our favorite splash pad because it is so big. There are 3 big areas to splash and get wet in, and we especially love the huge waterfall to walk through. Adventure Heights also has a large all-abilities playground.
Spanish Fork has two splash pads and this one is right off the 1-15. It sprays a lot of water, so our boys love coming here to get super wet. It’s a great spot for cooling off. It’s also right next to North Park (and Costco for lunch).
The Springville Splash Pad has a little river and an area with bigger sprayers. There is also a playground next door and a few big trees for shade. This was one of the first splash pads that we visited.
You will find the Provo Splash Pad at Pioneer Park in Provo. This splash pad is similar to the Spanish Fork splash pad in that it sprays a lot of water. There is also a curtain of water coming off one building that our boys think is super fun. There is lots of shade at this park, a large pavilion, and a playground.
Vineyard Grove: Orem
Vineyard Grove Park’s splash pad is unique because it has a large slide (the playground is pretty unique, too). The slide is a super fun way to stay cool. There are also lots of little sprayers and a shallow stream for the littlest kiddos.
Palisade Park: Orem
This is one of the busiest splash pads we have been to, but maybe it was the day we were there. Palisade Park Splash Pad has a fun waterfall that is based off of Mount Timpanogos. There are also some little sprayers and a river. This park has a playground and a large pavilion. They also have a snack shack that is open often in the summer.
Creekside Splash Pad: Alpine
This splash pad never seems very busy, but it is super fun for younger kids. There are lots of little sprayers and it has a small fence around it to keep kids in. There are 3 different playgrounds to check out at this park, too.
Harvey Park: Cedar Hills
Harvey Park’s playground and splash pad are all based on a space theme. The splash pad has a big dumper that looks like a rocket ship. There are also some little sprayers, as well as a few planets with bubbling water.
The Highland Splash Pad is the original Utah County splash pad. We have been splashing at this splash pad since our oldest was a baby. This splash pad is a large river, which is quite a few inches deep. There are rocks to climb on in the river. This splash pad also has an area with bigger sprayers, too.
Ivory Ridge Splash Pad: Lehi
My boys prefer the Lehi Splash Pad for racing their flip flops. They say it is the best spot for flip-flop races. This splash pad is especially great for little kids because there are small sprayers all around and nothing big to dump on a little one. But there are plenty of fun places to splash.
Cory Wride Memorial Park: Eagle Mountain
This park has so much to do, and is super fun. The splash pad at Cory Wride Memorial Park is also amazing. Our boys love the little waterfalls that they can stand underneath. There is also a little river with sprayers. Half of the splash pad is covered with a shade sail, too.
