Splashin' Around Tiger Falls Splash Park in Paris, Illinois!

We took this little road trip to Paris with our neighborhood play group, and originally our only destination was the Paris Splash Park. (The beach was a fun afterthought!)


The Paris Splash Park was a colorful attraction with plenty of buckets, waterfalls, and fountains for kids to enjoy. At the advice of a friend, we brought our own water squirters, scoops, and buckets.

Kids of all ages are welcome to play, but I noticed that kids ages 4 and up seemed to have the most fun.

The Park Splash Park typically opens on Memorial Day weekend. Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Remember, Paris operates on CENTRAL time! So in “Indiana Time” (EST) the hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.

Thankfully, Paris isn’t too far! I think budgeting 40 minutes each direction is a safe bet.
