Founders Park SplashPad


  1. Restrooms
  2. Water Playground


The SplashPad is located in Founders Park’s north section, and it is a safe and refreshing recreational water play system composed of nozzles, structures and loops producing an array of water spray options used to cool off, play, and enjoy. A great swimming pool alternative, the SplashPad is a safe aquatic play area - even for small children - requiring little supervision because of no standing water and zero water depth.

Guest capacity at the SplashPad is limited for the safety of everyone and to ensure physical distance; therefore, reservations are required. With a reservation, families will be able to comfortably settle in at their assigned area, which includes designated tables and chairs under the shaded sun deck. There is no cost to make a reservation.


Required reservations are open to Aventura residents only with a valid and existing account on the City’s Online Registration System (ORS). Residents can reserve a 2-hour time slot one day in advance beginning at 8:00 a.m. each day thereafter. To control capacity at the SplashPad, residents must be prepared to select the guests in their household at the time of reservation. Visit to begin and complete a reservation. 

Reservation Cancelation
We ask that residents please email to cancel an existing reservation for any reason so that we can provide the canceled 2-hour time slot to another guest.
