Water fun parks

Time to play in the water in Greenville? When it’s hot, water fun is the best fun! Get your sprinklers out, buy the water guns, and turn your hills into water slides with tarps and hoses. But, if you want to put even more variety into your water play, check out these parks! We are fortunate to have three waterparks in Greenville County, so be sure to read our reviews to find the best one for your family. There’s currently only one free, splash pad in Greenville County, but Fountain Inn will be opening a new splash pad this summer! In Greenville, Unity Park will also have a free, splash pad once it is completed.
