The Quarry Splash Pad is located at the back of Williamson County Southwest Regional Park, past all of the playground equipment and athletic fields. It is easy to find, however, if you just follow the signs, and is surrounded by parking spots.
The Splash Pad is built out of smoothed stone, and uses rock features from the quarry formerly located on the land. Now, it is mostly made up of gushers coming up from the ground, but also features its share of other fun: squirters, a waterfall and a water slide that's just perfect for young kids. (Note that there is no standing water, meaning a low drowning risk -- but there's no lifeguard on duty, either.)
Especially for younger kids, there's a a smaller play area with small gushers of water and just a bubbling water section for babies and toddlers, a huge sandbox, plus a small water slide that is programmed to spill little amounts of water intermittently, never getting too wet to make the slide too fast for little kids.
Older kids will enjoy a waterfall that dumps water on kids that like to get wet from above -- the only overhead water structure -- and multiple water squirters kids can shoot towards each other.
The adults will be happy to know there are picnic tables and artificial turf to sit on around the water structures. Have a birthday coming up in your family? There are two large pavilion areas you can rent/reserve for parties. (Call 512.260.4283 for details and reservations.)

Kids of all ages love the Quarry Splash Pad, and after an afternoon of playing they are sure to be exhausted. Without a doubt, the splash pad is a great escape during the hot months for hours of fun!
