Splash Parks & Creek Spots

Cooling off in the water is essential to our hot and humid summers here in middle Tennessee. If you’re not native to the area, you might not know where all the best creeks and splash parks are, but we sure do have some good ones! Grab some towels, your sunscreen, and a few friends and cool off in one of these spots!

We especially love the creek spots in our house. I recommend you explore them ALL! From toddlers to teens, they can really be a blast! Depending on if it has rained or not, they can be super shallow all over or have deeper spots mixed in.

Creek Essentials

Prepare for success. If you plan to stay longer than thirty minutes, I recommend you pack a few things to take with you to make the adventure enjoyable for all.  

  • Chair to sit on
  • Blanket to lay out
  • Snacks/Lunch & Drinks
  • Water Toys: nets, buckets, shovels, etc.
  • Bug Spray
  • Sunscreen
  • Water Shoes or shoes that can be worn in the water
