Rest of the Best: 10 Best Houston Splash Parks

6. Settegast Park

Just a solid splash park all around. Settegast is probably the bar you'd set for a "good park", being neither too simple or overly ambitious. There's geysers and misty arches and other good stuff, and it gets points again for the safe rubber surface. All in all, when you think of a splash park Settegast is perfectly textbook.

5. Nieto Park

Designed to look like a beach, the Nieto Park water area is colorful, whimsical, and fun. There are pipe tunnels and palm trees that spray water, as well as plenty of shade for parents to just sit and watch. Another perk is that the surface is rubberized, not stone, so fewer slips and accidents.

4. Montie Beach Park

Another great beach-themed, park. Montie Beash gets extra points for the adorable whale that spouts water through, and because the wave effect from the wave sprays is actually pretty close to the feeling of the tide washing over your toes.

The Aquarium is on the list but you skip the zoo's splash pad? I don't understand. If you can put one that you have to pay to play, you can also include the zoo's.

Hermann park splash pad is awful- its muddy, dirty, crowded, kids are unsupervised and the jets have no power.
