Splash Pads and Pools in Georgetown!


Written by

Matt Carey-Marketing Committee



Texas summer has arrived and it is bringing the heat! We decided to jump in headfirst and find the best places in Georgetown to cool things down this summer!


The Playful Child loves the unique designs at Georgetown’s splash pads, allowing kids to have safe, unstructured play. Some will wait anxiously under the bucket, jumping with excitement for the next big downpour. Others might constantly be dodging the water in a thrilling game of tag against the splashes. You will probably even find a little tike who always plants their seat on the first jet stream they can find!



See if any of Georgetown’s Splash Pads will WET your appetite!





Downtown Splash Pad


Need a quick and simple place to cool off the kids? Located next to the Art Center, the Downtown Splash Pad is a beautiful brick courtyard with water jets erupting from the ground! Unstaffed and free to the public.

Speaking of unstructured play, one of the best things about a swimming pool is that it’s an open field to swim, spin, jump, and splash in. You’ll always find a myriad of activities sprinkled about the pool, from snorkeling to treasure diving, from water guns to splash fights, from backstrokes to back floats!
