Tempe Lake Splash Area

Open Daily 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through September 28, 2008.
If you have a large group coming to the playground please call the Tempe Town Lake office in advance of your arrival at 480-350-8625 so they can better serve you.
Note: Splash Playground will be closed July 3, 2008 and will re-open on July 4, 2008 at 4 PM when gates open for the 4th of July Town Lake Festival.
Visitors to Tempe Town Lake can experience a small storm, even when the weather is sunny and warm. Splash Playground at Tempe Beach Park lets children cool off and have fun at Tempe Town Lake.
The one-acre playground teaches how a drop of rain falls from the sky and ends up either in the ocean or becomes part of the city water supply. The entrance to the playground is a metal circle of clouds that rains a light mist of water onto visitors. Thunder claps and lightning flashes. Waterfalls turn into streams and water rushes into canals. Children can enjoy running through the ocean and riding toy whales. Only about two inches of water will pool in parts of the park. The water is kept flowing across the playground, where it is eventually collected, filtered, cleaned, and re-circulated in a state-of-the-art system.
While the playground is very safe—an attendant will be on-hand during operating hours—children should be watched by an adult while enjoying Splash Playground. The playground is located on the south bank of Tempe Town Lake in Tempe Beach Park. Click here for directions to Town Lake and Tempe Beach Park. For more information call (480) 350-8625.
