Rest of the Best: 10 Best Houston Splash Parks
One of the most popular splash parks in the city is the Gateway Fountain at Discovery Green. Personally, I find it more of a divergence than an actual play area, but there's no denying that it's probably the best kept of the splash parks in the city. The jets are really something else, as well. Lots of power in the water, and it's a really great place to make friends.
Though it really dances a little closer to water park or pool than splash park, the Noah's Ark-themed water play area at the Quillian Center is amazing enough that it can't be left off the list. Water slides improve almost everything in the world, and the structure is whimsical and fun. The downside is that it's one of the few splash parks you do have to pay for, with a $7 entrance fee, but you also get access to the big adult pool for that.
1. Hermann Park
The City of Houston
It doesn't get much better than good old Hermann Park. Part of the massive park complex, the large and well-maintained sprayground has everything you could want. The water effects are varied, and there's a real sandy beach next to it to complete a beach fantasy. It's also a good way to cool off after a hot day at the nearby zoo if the walk hasn't tired you out.
