Clear Lake Park and Splashpad has to be one of the best Houston area parks!
Just down the road from Space Center Houston is Clear Lake Park. This huge park is right on the water and has four playgrounds (with amazing equipment), a splashpad, picnic pavilions, restrooms, sports fields, a museum and more!
On the south side of the park is the splashpad and two giant playgrounds... with so much equipment that all ages can find something to do. And it is so unique!
There are monkey bars and wheels and nets for the ninjas and little structures for the little kids. One side also has ramps for kids of all abilities.
Maybe the most unusual thing was the net the was on hinges... so it swayed as the kids climbed it!
This side of the park also has a giant ship structure, a dragon, an alligator lillipad and more. There is something cool every where you look.
The only trick is that with all the equipment, it's a little difficult to supervise, so you need to follow around little kids rather than sit and watch.
On the north side of Clear Lake Park is a very good ninja-worthy play structure, a toddler play structure, an outdoor exercise center, the Bay Area Museum and lots of ball fields. This side is quieter (except on game days) but still has a lot of places to play!
There is a busy road between the two sides of the park, so we drove between them. We also drove by the museum (but did not go in).
There is just a little shade on the playgrounds at Clear Lake Park... so bring your sunscreen and hats!
