Siouxland Splash Pads

Splash pads are popping up across Siouxland, and in this weather, we sure need them! Splash pads are park areas that don't have any standing water like a pool, but have lots of fountains, dumping buckets, sprayers, and other water features kids can run through, under, over, or past to get nice and wet on a hot day

The Sioux City splashpads get mostly rave reviews from local families, but the most common complaint when one comes up is kids slipping. To avoid this, make sure kids are in water shoes with good grip on the bottom, not in flip flops or other shoes with smooth bottoms. And don't forget your sunscreen!

Here's where you can go to join in on the refreshing splash pad fun in and around Sioux City:

Miracle Field at Riverside Park

Miracle Field is my top recommendation for visitors from out of town looking for a splash pad to play at, and there are currently two splash pads--one for toddlers and one for older kids. Both are accessible to those with special needs.

Coming soon

There are plans underway to build new splash pads at the following Sioux City area locations:

    • along the Missouri riverfront
