Featured Five: Beat the Heat With the Splash Pads of Midland

Midland summers are hot. But that only means we have mastered the art in cooling down. Make a splash this summer with our top Featured Five splash pads and aquatic centers in Midland. Join us in staying cool, dipping our toes, racing through unpredictable jets, or claiming your place in line for a waterslide and jump on in. These are the splash pads of Midland!

Centennial Park Splash Pad

If you’re spending the day downtown, take a break with the kids at the fantastic splash pad at Centennial Park! The little ones will love running through and dodging the fifty jets cascading from the ground. Stop by between 10AM and 8PM to cool off in the heart of downtown Midland!

XTO Splash Pad

The XTO Splash Pad, within Dennis the Menace Park, was added as a part of the park’s most recent renovation. In addition to the multiple unique playgrounds at this park, you can expect a very creative splash pad, including a pirate ship and water slides!

HEB Splash Pad at Momentum Bank Ballpark

Heading to a Rockhounds game? Make sure you include some time at the HEB Splash Pad onsite! Open during games as well as throughout the week, this baseball-themed splash pad is an excellent way for little ones to cool off during a game. It’s located on the east side of the stadium – look for the water shooting out of the giant baseball on the ground!
