Splash Pad sprayground at Dell Holmes Park

Categories: Attraction, Park

Features: Beach/Waterfront, City parks, Kid-friendly, Playground, Sprayground

Parking: Lot

Admission: Free

Located on the north shore of Lake Maggiore, Dell Holmes Park is the home of St. Petersburg's first zero-depth water playground. Open from May 1 to Oct. 31, it has water bubbling up from the ground, shooting from dolphins and frogs and pouring from colorful arches as kids scamper on the non-skid surface. The sprayground is part of the playground area and operates during the summer months. An in-ground tank holds 3,000 gallons of recirculated, chlorinated water. The playground can accommodate 70 people. SplashPad's hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily through October.

NOTE: The sprayers are motion-activated so don't think the park is closed if you don't see water spouts going.

Other features in the 21-acre park include an accessible and lighted fitness trail, fishing pier, gazebo, picnic shelters, golf driving range and putting green. The playground area features climbing boulders and a giant seesaw. 

Dell Holmes is normally open 30 minutes before sunrise until 30 minutes after sunset every day, but cost-saving measures have reduced and changed park hours of operation. Phone the recreation department for the current schedule.
