Splash Park

Posted by Wendy on Tuesday Jul 7, 2009 Under Parenting

Today we went exploring.  I told the girls I’d heard about this splash park but the directions I had weren’t specific so we’d drive up and down the road it was on in hopes of finding it.  The adventure was on.  It ended up being relatively easy to find, less than 2 miles from our favorite farm to visit, Springdale Farm in Spencerport.

I have heard tell of the spraygrounds in Geneva, NY but have not yet taken the girls what with the mix of my kids having some fear of the water, which this summer they are finally getting over, and the hour long drive to and from that park.  But when I read about a few closer to home on the Kids out and about website I thought I’d look into those since they are free so if they don’t like it nothing lost.  So today being a beautiful day and having all day to do whatever thought we’d go explore and see what gem we might discover.

Since I wasn’t sure if the girls would like the water or not we started by going to Springdale Farm for the morning and then going in search of Pineway Ponds Park in Ogden(Spencerport), NY.  It’s a public town park so it’s completely free.  If you take 531W from Rochester to the Spencerport exit Rte 259, go north on 259 about a mile, it’s just past the town center on the left.  They have a spray ground that is awesome.  There are all kinds of fixtures that spray in different ways as well as jets of water that shoot straight out of the ground.  The park also has a very large playground right next to the water so if you have kids with different interests you can keep an eye of all of them.  My girls enjoyed it immensely and want to go back tomorrow.  Well we most likely won’t go there tomorrow, but we might go check out the one in Webster…
