San Antonio Water Park – Free Splash Pads San Antonio

Yanaguana Garden’s splash pad at Hemisfair Park

Where: Hemisfair, 434 S Alamo St, San Antonio, TX 78205

This beautiful and popular park is located in the heart of downtown San Antonio. It opened only a few of years ago so this is one of the newest San Antonio splash pads. A great feature of this splash pad is the nearby changing rooms and restrooms. And, when you’re done in the water, there are many places to sit, play, and chill out while you dry off.

The Pearl Splash Pad

Where: The Park at Pearl, 312 Pearl Pkwy, San Antonio, TX 78215

Located near The Twig, Gustav’s Geysers is a somewhat small splash pad but welcomes children attending the popular weekend Farmer’s Market or any day, really. It’s a fun place where parents can sit nearby to chat and sip coffee while kids cool off in the spray.

Fischer Park Sprayground, New Braunfels

Where: Fischer Park, 1935 Hilltop Summit Road, New Braunfels, TX 78130

A few years back, Fischer Park in New Braunfels added an amazing Sprayground. It’s getting rave reviews from kids and parents. We love the eco-friendly aspect of this splash pad: the runoff from the Sprayground gets captured in the nearby fishing ponds and reused for the park’s irrigation. This splash pad is free to visit but, if you are not a New Braunfels resident and you decide to eat at one of the park’s picnic tables, you may have to pay a fee.

Pearsall Park Splash Pad

Like the splash pad at Yanaguana Garden, this splash pad debuted October 2015 on the corner of San Antonio Street and North Vaughan Avenues in Sequin. The splash pad’s claim to fame is its prevalent shade, located right next to it, providing parents who don’t want to get wet with a way to stay cool while watching their kids.
