Hubs and I took booger to the Shiloh Water Park on Saturday. What fun! It's a perfect little water playground for smaller children. The park is basically a big stretch of concrete with lots of fun water features in it - hoop tunnels that shoot water at you as you run through, small water slides, fountains that shoot directly up from the ground, water "cannons," and trickling umbrellas of water.
There are no pools, so you don't have to worry about safety hazards. You can just splash around with your kid and relax.
Clay absolutely loved it. The slide and the water cannons were his favorites. (That, and just splashing around in general.) Admission is $5, and they only make you pay if you're going to play. (When we went, I paid, but Brian didn't. So he came in for free and took pics!) The park is located at 324 Shiloh Road in Brandon. Bringing in your own food/coolers is not allowed (though I think they let you if you host your child's birthday party there), but they sell drinks, chips, and ice cream at the park. I can't remember all of the park hours, but I know they are open until 6 p.m. on Saturdays. (If you want more complete info on hours, you can try calling 6101-825-3047. The sad part? Every time I've called, no one's answered the phone, and the voice mail box has been full.)
Anyway, I highly recommend this attraction for younger children. Clay could have spent a loooong time there! As it was, we played for about an hour and a half before we got hungry and headed for dinner.
