Looking for a fun, inexpensive way to beat this Texas summer heat? Look no further than the Faulkner Park Spraypad in South Tyler.
This is another place wear rules are few and far between, simply be kind to others & keep the park clean. This spraypad has several water features and a couple dump buckets if you are really looking for a splash. You can also bring buckets, water guns, and water balloons to add in the already exciting experience.
We would recommend bringing a picnic or at least snacks to munch on with LOTS of water. Being in the sun is draining, plus running and playing is more taxing on us and our littles.
If your kiddos are like ours, they are ready for the next event no matter what you are doing. Thankfully, Faulkner Park has a playground in the same area as the splash pad. There are swings, slides, mountain (hehe) climbing, and the contraption photographed above the girls loved! They find it extremely rewarding to climb to the very top, which I guess to scale is a great feat!
Aside from the cool splash park and playground, Faulkner Park also has Tennis Courts, Baseball Fields, Fishing, Hiking & Biking trails and beautiful scenery. If you have not explored Faulkner Park yet, you should really take a trip. We even got to help carry a turtle cross the road -he literally jumped out of my hands as soon as he saw the water.. who said turtles are slow?? The girls even caught some tadpoles in there butterfly nets. Just make SURE to bring bug spray, especially if you are going on a hike. Also… beware of the horse flies, just ask Lili, haha.. We are able to laugh about it now, because it’s over. However, we are only allowed to tell this story in hushed tones.
As you can tell by these adorable faces, we recommend Faulkner Park Spray Park for an afternoon of cool fun in the sun!
