Fountains and Splash Pads in Colorado Springs

Affiliate links are used on this blog. Read my full disclosure here.

Looking to cool the kids off on these hot summer days? There are plenty of fountains and splash pads in Colorado Springs (or neighboring areas)! Some of our favorites are listed below. All of these operate weather permitting during the summer months only. Please visit the websites for exact hours and information before heading out!

Aga Splash Pad

The splash pad is a lot of fun for those who like to get wet! The entire area is fenced with one door to get in. There are a couple of benches inside the fenced area, but these usually end up wet from wind and spraying water. There isn’t a lot of shade over the splash area itself, but lots of trees and a pavilion in the park area. I would bring a picnic blanket, though. The tables are usually taken. There is also a small playground on the other side of the park. Restrooms are open in the park. There is no staff supervision.

Splash Pads in Colorado Springs

The splash pad is located at the southern end of Aga Park at 213 West Alabama Avenue near Race Street in Fountain. The hours of the splash pad are 9 A.M. to 9 P.M.

Deerfield Hills Spray Ground

This spray ground is pretty popular and can get really crowded on weekends. Water guns and dumping buckets are a hit with the kids. There are a few mild water spouts for younger kids, too. A large pavilion that is next to the spray ground area is the only shade available. There is a small playground nearby in the park. Restrooms are open and the spray ground has a staff person supervising the area. They accept reservations for groups and parties.

Julie Penrose Fountain at America the Beautiful Park

We really only seem to visit this park in the summer when the fountain is running. Even younger kids can enjoy wading in the shallow water around the fountain. The fountain does get busy on nice days and on weekends, so it’s better to visit at an off-peak time. We usually bring along an umbrella, because there is almost no shade near the fountain. There is also a covered pavilion in the park and some restrooms (which aren’t the cleanest).

This park is located at 126 Cimino Drive in downtown Colorado Springs. The fountain operates 11 am to 5:30 pm.

Cost: Free

Widefield Community Center

This community center has a great pool and a lesser-known splash pad. There is a fee for this one, but it is typically much less crowded. There are some really mild water features, which would be great for younger kids. There is no shade at the splash area but there are some canopies in the pool area. Open swim times are scheduled in two-hour blocks, so plan your arrival time accordingly. Restrooms with changing areas and showers are available. There are lifeguards on duty.

The community center is located at 705 Aspen Drive in Widefield. Hours vary by day and can be found on their website.

Uncle Wilbur Fountain at Acacia Park

My kids love this fountain in downtown Colorado Springs. It plays music and goes through different spray patterns. There are some larger trees in the area for shade. There’s a playground next to the fountain area. Restrooms are available on the other side of the park. There is a staff member supervising the area.

This park is located at 115 East Platte Avenue in downtown Colorado Springs. The fountain operates noon to 6pm.

Cost: Free (but you may need to feed the meter)

The splash area is located in front of Cinemark Theater at 3305 Cinema Point along Powers in Colorado Springs. Hours can vary but you can contact the theater to see if it’s on.
