    Gracie Amador – There is a new splash pad at Bithlo community park. It’s a nice park…my daughter plays softball there.
    Amy Hague Murphy – The splash pad at the Bithlo community park is free! It’s very quiet on the week days and very busy on the weekends.

    Beth LeBaube – Thanks for this list! We love Downey Park’s splash pad as well. It is free until school is out. It is fenced in and provides lots of covered areas with lounge chairs for parents.

    Katie Randall Jessee – We were in Tavares this weekend, there is a great Splash Pad inside the Wooton Park in the lake. It was awesome. But only open Saturday and Sunday.

    Stephanie Travis Varner – The a Winter Garden one is fantastic, but parents need to warn little ones not to run. The bricks they used are incredibly slippery. My son slipped numerous times and eventually split his eyebrow open there.
