The aquatic complex at the Palm Beach Gardens Recreation Center has a splash playground and splash pad informally known as Burns Road Sprinkler Park. Here kids can climb a play structure while water shoots up at them, rain splashes down on them, and buckets empty loads of water on their heads! It's a ton of fun! Shallow water surrounds the playground.
For tamer fun for the wee kids, there's a splash pad with smaller buckets that fall on you, warm water (heated by the cement) that shoots up in fountains, an elephant sprayer you can spin around, and a palm tree that spurts water. Young kids can spend hours here. Little kids love to start the water with the hand-activated sensor- they are in control!
There are plenty of shaded comfortable chairs for the lazier grown-ups!
On the other side of the complex is a large swimming pool and some water slides. The slides aren't fun- they are small, and elbow-crunchers. Also the lifeguards here are complete maniacs and won't let anyone have any fun. A line of kids waits to try aquaclimb, a climbing wall that looks fun because when you fall you land in the water!
Bring plenty of sunscreen, hats for the kids, and sunglasses- it's very bright and burny. See hours open below.
Outside the aquatic center is lovely Gardens Playground with a ton of climbing structures, a water mister, sandpit, a rope climber, and swings, partially under the shade of huge trees. Bring mosquito repellent in the summer.
Nearby check out Gardens Mall, where you can cool down indoors, or Downtown at the Gardens, a super fun outdoor mall with a train, carousel, live music, whole foods store, and sidewalk cafes.

|My 3 year old love this park!!! We first came when he was 1 n he loved it so much that we r coming year around! The only down part is the schedule! There are a lot of kids that they don't go to school or get out early and would love to hang out at the pool! |
Other than that, by far our fav place!
|It was nice to hang outside by the fountains as the summer heat was high. My son had a great time playing and running around. A lot of seating and shade, and parents splashing in the water too.|
