Splash Pads, Spray Parks and Fountains

splash pads

There is a new splash pad in Hodgkins and the Oak Brook Park District is building a new wading pool and splash pad! Check out the new information as well as the complete list of splashing fun below. For the purpose of this list, I consider splash pads, spray parks, and fountains to be smaller areas without a pool that kids can splash around for free or a minimal fee.

Ty Warner Park Spray Park
700 Blackhawk Drive
Westmont, IL 60559
(630) 969-8080
great spray park surrounded by a sandy area and parks, can get busy but there are picnic tables and umbrellas if you can snag one.

Burr Ridge Village Center fountain
701 Village Center Drive
Burr Ridge, IL 60527
(630) 654-2782
perfect for little kids, little fountains spraying from the ground allows kids to run through the water or fill up buckets- whatever they feel like doing after some great shopping :) there is a grassy area where you can set up a blanket and it’s a little known spot so it’s calm and peaceful. don’t get your hopes up, it’s not huge and exciting, but kids absolutely love it.

Splash Harbor
Hodgkins Park District
8997 Lyons Street
Hodgkins, IL 60525
(708) 354-6563
This new splash pad is located off Kane Road and Lyons Street. I haven’t had the opportunity to check it out yet, so let me know how it is!
From Kidlist read Joan: “We just went to splash pad at hodgkins! $3 for a day pass. Adults can sit on lounge chairs. Great for little ms older kids really nice and clean and safe..they have a great water slide for young kids!” Thanks Joan!!

Lyons, IL 60534
lazy river, a large pool with a tunnel slide, sprays and dunking buckets and a splash pad with a toddler slide and assorted water works

Pelican Harbor
200 S. Lindsey Lane
Bolingbrook, IL 60440
(630) 739-1705
this one has a parent tot play time for kids 7 and under, so I’m going to include it in both lists. it’s earlier in the morning so you can go before nap time, it’s cheaper than regular admission and you don’t have to deal with protecting your little one from the rowdy older ones.

The Oak Brook Park District Family Aquatic Center
1450 Forest Gate Road
Oak Brook, IL 60523
(630) 990-4233
A new outdoor wading pool and splash pad is currently under construction and is expected to be complete in the beginning of July. You can see a drawing of the plan here.

Heritage Park Splash Pad

Small splash pad with a few fountain sprays, make your own river with dams, sand area with conveyor belts, pulleys and pipes along with a zip line and play equipment makes this park unique.

I would say that this spray park is not for toddlers and babies, more for older children (maybe starting at 4 or 5 years old?) because the water comes our with fairly high pressure

    Thanks for this awesome information! It is a little difficult to find direct information about things to do in the suburbs with kids. Nice site!

  3. Thanks! I am looking forward to going to the one in Lisle with my little one this summer!
