Splash and stay cool in the shadow of dinosaurs

New England’s largest Splashpad is included with your admission to The Dinosaur Place at Nature’s Art Village! This one-of-a-kind dinosaur-themed water park is one of Mystic County’s premier attractions. The Dinosaur Place Splashpad is a zero-depth water playground with water features for every age group. Fun and engaging water tables will entertain infants and toddlers for hours, while over 30 dinosaur-themed sprinklers, dumping buckets and water guns will have the older children screaming with joy. Just added in 2015, the Vortex Superwheel is a gigantic spinning wheel which pours thousands of gallons of water down on everyone waiting below. The Splashpad also features a dinosaur “ribcage” waterfall, dueling Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor-headed water cannons and much more! There is seating available surrounding the Splashpad and changing rooms located right on site. Water shoes or flip-flops are required to use the Splashpad.

Water everywhere and in every fun form at ocean park

At Ocean Beach Park, there are so many ways to enjoy the water, you’ll need to have a strategy in hand as soon as you park the car. There’s the popular triple waterslides attraction, where the thrills are only matched by the spectacular views. There’s the 50-meter Olympic-sized swimming pool (with changing rooms and lockers). Children under 8 can have a blast dashing in and out of the spraypark. And, of course, there’s the half-mile of carefully groomed sugar-sand beach, wide enough for everyone to be able to really spread out. Even the boardwalk health club overlooks the water. If you’re looking for something a little quieter but still water-centric, a nature walk overlooks beautiful Alewife Cove.
