I’m not sure how I’ve missed this hidden little gem, but there is an awesome splash park tucked away at the back of The Village at Fairview. Thank goodness, some of our playgroup friends introduced us to this free fun last Friday!
When we got there, the boys were a little timid to head for the water. I’m blaming it on the fact that this was our very first water activity for the “summer” season. To be honest, I had to borrow a swim diaper since I’m totally unprepared for all of our water activities that are about to begin. Plus, I keep wishing Riverson will just magically wake up and decide to start using the potty. Wishful thinking, I know.
They both quickly fell in love with the random fountains shooting water in to the air.
I loved how Riverson never failed to be surprised when the water shot in to the air.
And every time, he got just as excited as the time before.
I loved seeing this happiness on his face. Knowing how much he loves the water, he was in heaven here.
I DID learn a few things that are good to know for the next time we make our way back there.
For starters, it’s good to get there early because there are a few tables with an umbrella covering them, but they fill up fast and from what I’ve heard, if you don’t get there by 10:30 in the morning, they’ll more than likely be taken.
Of course, if shade isn’t an issue for you, there is plenty of space to spread out a blanket and have a little picnic setting.
Next time we come, I’m also planning to bring a water toy or two. The boys seemed to be jealous of everyone who had their own toy.
It’s so nice to find free activities around Dallas where I can take them to get worn out and be ready for an awesome nap by the time we’re finished. Those are always my favorite acitivities!
