The days are getting longer, and now Victoria kids can spend even more sunlight hours splashing at the City of Victoria Parks & Recreation splash pads.

Effective Saturday, July 3, the splash pads will be open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The splash pads have been open seven days a week since April.

“We’ve had residents request this change, so we know the extended hours will be helpful for those who want to use the splash pads earlier or later in the day when it’s not as hot outside,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jason Alfaro.

Parks & Recreation currently operates two splash pads: 

  • Ethel Lee Tracy Splash Pad, 1507 Placido Benavides Drive
  • Lone Tree Creek Splash Pad, 4009 E. Airline Road

The Community Park Splash Pad, 211 N. Ben Wilson St., is closed for repairs.

In addition, Parks & Recreation is suspending its reservation system for splash pads. The splash pads will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations that were made before this policy change will still be honored.

For more information, contact Parks & Recreation at 361-485-3200.
