There's only have a limited amount of time left to take my little peanuts out to enjoy all the fun that summer has to offer here in Collin County, Texas.
So, yesterday, I piled the kids in the new car (actually my very first minivan....but THAT's another story for another day) and we set off for a new adventure at a new splash pad. Honestly, I think we've only played at 2 splash pads in the area this whole summer.
Frisco Commons Park (Hope Park)
8000 McKinney Rd.
Frisco, TX 75034
If you read my blog very often, you'll know that I've been dealing with a bad back lately, results of a slipped disc and pars fracture, so the idea of running around after kids in a large park is not a very cool thought for me. So, instead of going to Celebration Park (one of the only other splash pad parks I've been to...and the size of an amusement park...kinda joking, but not really) I opted for Frisco Commons Park.
I'm so happy with my choice. This splash pad was SO manageable. Most of the kids were young, 5 and under so I didn't have to worry about my 1 and 2 year old being mowed over by "big kids." There were plenty of picnic tables under the shaded pavilion for us to get a little relief from the sun and munch on snacks.
"Bravo, Frisco Commons, you just might be my new favorite splash pad park!"
McKinney Mommas' Favorite Features:
- Bathrooms, literally steps away from the splash pad (SCORE for those of us with newly potty trained toddlers)
- Multiple shaded areas with picnic tables
- Full visibility of the entire splash pad, from any of the shaded sitting areas
- Parking lot is a very close walk to the splash pad, no need to traverse the whole park to find it.
- Note: This splash park will close for the season on September 29th, 2013
Overall, we had a really nice few hours playing and cooling off at the park. I can't wait to take another adventure to a new splash pad before the summer comes to an end.
Any suggestions on which Splash Pad/Park I should visit next in North Dallas or Collin County?
