Austin Splash Pads & Pools

Austin Splash Pads & Pools


Summer is here and the heat is on!  Check out one of our many Four Points Area pools and splash pads for some fun in the sun.


Greater Four Points Area

Anderson Mill Pool

We haven’t been to this pool, but the diving board and slide look like it could be a nice change of pace for your elementary-aged kiddos.



Bailey Park

Small splash pad next to the Seton Medical Center.  We’re going to have to check this place out one day when my husband’s working nearby and we can stop by for a picnic lunch.


Beachside Billy’s & Volente Beach Water Park

Beachside Billy’s & Volente Beach Water Park is under new management this summer.  I’ve never been here before, but I have heard from friends that it was a bit rundown.  It might be worth checking out, though.  Let me know if you’ve been and have tips or feedback!


Brushy Creek Park’s Splash Pad

I’m a huge fan of the entire Brushy Creek Trail and surrounding parks.  At the actual Brushy Creek Park, though, you’ll find a nice-sized splash pad.  It’s a short walk from the trail and area where you can rent paddle boards and kayaks.  This would be a great weekend spot for the whole family.


Champion Park

If you have a dinosaur-obsessed child or one that loves sand boxes, then you should stop by this splash pad.  It’s right next to a giant sand box and an interesting dinosaur climbing installation.  Yeah, I don’t know how to describe that.  If neither of these are important to your children, then I’d say go to the Brushy Creek Park’s splash pad right down the road instead.


Elizabeth Milburn Pool

This community pool has a nice kiddie area with huge slides.  Your elementary-aged kiddos will love it.  Plus, the daily rates are super cheap even for non-residents.  If you really love it, you can learn check out the Cedar Park Pool Fees and Passes information.


El Salido Pool

This pool with splash area looks very fun for younger kids.  My kids LOVED the playground which is right next door, so I’m sure I’ll bring them back to visit both soon.


Jester Club

Our family loves this pool.  You do need to be a member or a guest of a member.  Jester Club Membership information can be found here.   There is a nice toddler pool and tons of shade.


Quarry Splash Pad

This is the coolest splash pad.  Okay, seriously, I had fun here.  This is what my life has become …

I will say, though, that if you’re bringing little kids (under 2), this might not be the best splash pad for you.  It’s very large and you can’t see the entire splash pad from anywhere.  Last year I went with 1-year-old Parker and 3-year-old Foster and it was difficult managing both.  However, we plan to go back this year and I’m sure it will be easier since they now play together.  You can read my full review on the Quarry Splash Pad here.



River Place Country Club’s Pool

This is our neighborhood pool so we’re there all the time.  The kiddie pool area is covered and they do have servers who can bring you food and drink during peak hours.  However, there are no fun water features so bring your own pool toys or use the community noodles and kickboards (if you forget to bring toys like me).  The club’s website can provide you more information about joining River Place Country Club.


Bella Mar Pool

This is a private pool that requires a key, but it looks amazing (Yes, I’m that creepy woman who has looked through the fence when jogging by).
