Splash Pads & Spray Parks in McHenry County

I love spray parks! With four kids and a 7 year age range, it’s a great way for some water fun without having to worry about having enough hands and helpers to be in a pool with them. Best of all I can sit on the sidelines – no swimsuit required!  With zero depth areas with sprinklers, squirt guns, tunnels, and more kids of all ages can have fun and be safe this summer. The best part is most of them are free or cost only a few dollars to enter, so a visit to a splash pad or spray park in McHenry County won’t break the bank.
