We love the Mariposa Splash Pad at Springs Preserve, especially for hot summer days. It’s a colorful flower and bug themed splash pad and such a good addition to the preserve.
Right next to the splash pad is a small playhouse with a slide. It’s perfect for younger kids. They also have several shaded tables with chairs around the play area to watch the kids or eat a quick snack.
The splash pad is located by the Butterfly Habitat. It’s a little bit of a walk from the entrance so bring your stroller and download the free Springs Preserve app that will map out your route to get there. There’s no restrooms right next to splash pad, but there is one nearby in the Garden Amphitheater (you’ll pass it on your way to the splash pad).
The Springs Preserve is currently open just Thursdays - Mondays. The splash pad is open only seasonally.
