SPLASH! LA MIRADA REGIONAL AQUATICS CENTER REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!
Do you have a fish in your family? You know, the type of child that asks to go swimming all day, every day. I have two of them. Field Trip Girl and Field Trip Boy are avid swimmers.
Field Trip Boy especially likes to go on water slides. He was born a thrill seeker. So much so, that at the ripe old age two, he cried for hours after discovering he was too small to go on a certain water slide.
Well, happily those days are over! Now we are going to Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center in La Mirada, CA to celebrate my son’s new growth spurt!
While at Splash!, he gets to rides all the water slides that he wants because he is officially over 48 inches tall; the minimum height requirement to ride the largest water slides.
Summertime fun at Splash! includes a family-fun “Buccaneer Bay” which combines the excitement of a water park with pirate themed features throughout. Buccaneer Bay features a flowing river channel, three water slides, a children’s interactive play structure, zero-depth beach entry and two spray pad areas.
Pirate themed elements include: a marooned ship, a dramatic skull rock, shade canopies that resemble sails, cannon walls, wharf plank benches, and crow’s nest.
Last summer we visited Splash! for the first time and had a blast. My daughter especially enjoyed the lazy river and my son played on the smaller water slides which are designed for little children.
Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center also has a heated olympic size pool and offers year-round swim lessons for all ages and ability levels.
A few tips for visiting Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center:
1. Parking is FREE.
2. No outside food or drinks are allowed inside the park except for sealed water bottles. So if you want to eat you will either need to bring a picnic lunch to eat outside on the picnic tables or purchase food inside.
3. The best time to visit Splash! is after 3 pm when the crowds are the lightest.
4. Bring a lot of sunsceen and your own towels.
5. Splash! also makes a great location for summer birthday parties.
Happy Field Tripping,
