Celebration Splash Pad

Celebration Splash Pad

851 Celebration Ave. Celebration, FL 34747

Known as a Town created by Disney, Celebration is a quaint little town that feels nostalgic and yet is very modern at the same time. In the downtown area you can enjoy shopping in the many specialized shops. There is a Splash pad with gushing water. There is always an event taking place on the weekends. We like to get a large ice cream cone at Kilwin's and sit lakeside in the rocking chairs. The resident birds and alligators can be seen in and around the lake area. There is Boardwalk Trail that you can stroll along and enjoy the natural scenery. In the Winter they have an ice skating rink and it snows! For Hello Kitty lovers there is a Sanrio store.

Personal Recommendations:
Wear a Bathing suit and SPF for the splash Pad
Bring a change of clothes and a towel
The Playground & Pool is reserved for Residents Only.
Check the calendar on their web site fro events and make sure you arrive early parking is not always easy to find.
Use Kilwin's Public Restroom
