There is a free very large splash pad, walking trails, nice playground, and pavilions; good place for a picnic and wonderful view of Wilson Dam; the fountain and light show is enjoyable; another great place for families that is free in the area; great value!

I have only watched other people with their children playing in the water, since I don't have any small children in my life right now. Everyone seemed to be having a great time and it doesn't cost anything, other than gas to get there. Parents...More

The fountain/ splash pad was not open during our visit due to school being back in session, but it looked like it would be great!! The views are amazing and a good place to get out and stretch your legs after a long drive.

Kinda hard to find. Just follow the signs and the confusing part is that it's located behind the Marriot Hotel. Just go through the parking lot and you will be shocked at what's back there (we were anyway). A large area of water sprinklers, large...More
