If you are looking for splash pads, South Tampa has more than its share. There are four located in Downtown along the Riverwalk; Cotanchobee, Curtis Hixon x2 and Waterworks. There is a splash area in Anderson Park, next to Hyde Park Village. Another great splash pad is in Ballast Point park. All of these places are close to eateries, so just load up the kids and go. If you do not have any kids and you would still like to visit. Just carry a clipboard and wear a collared shirt. It will make you look professional.
