Enjoy Free Summer Fun at Carrollton Splash Parks
Carrollton’s W.J. Thomas Splash Park and Oak Hills Splash Park are officially open for the season beginning Wednesday, May 1 through Tuesday, October 15. Both parks have multiple features that provide a safe, no-cost environment for children to cool off during the hot summer months.
W.J. Thomas Splash Park
This free facility (1955 N. Perry Road) is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. To start the water features, simply tap the silver sensor on top of the red fire hydrant in the splash area. Once activated, it may take 15-20 seconds for the water to come on. Features are programmed to randomly cycle for approximately 80 minutes before needing to be reactivated using the sensor on the fire hydrant.
This beautiful site features mature shade trees, a wooden deck with picnic tables, plenty of parking, rolling green lawns, and a playground nestled in a quiet neighborhood. Features include spray equipment and shade structures. Located within easy walking distance from the popular W.J. Thomas Sports Fields and Josey Ranch Sports Complex, this is the perfect site for free water play and family picnics. The deck, tables, and shaded areas are all available on a first-come, first-serve basis. No space is available to rent at this facility.

A pavilion, tables, grills, and shaded areas are all available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Restrooms are also on site and available to the public while the splash park is operational.
