Flodin Park in Canton

On Memorial Day we visited Flodin Park in Canton to try out the SwimZip suits we just received for the girls. (More about SwimZip to come this week).  The park is located at 43399 Saltz Rd in Canton, Michigan.  the splash park is open daily Memorial Day through Labor Day from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Flodin Park hosts a small splash pad and playground area, nature trail, tennis courts, a basketball court, baseball fields and in-line skate rink on their 28.5 acres.  



Parking is really close to the splash pad area and play ground which was really nice.  However, there were no restrooms, just two port-a-john, which were very full and not maintained.  




The splash pad is cute with water features designed for younger and older children.  The area is small, so I imagine that if it gets busy, it can be quite hectic.  But with Heritage so close, it might be a good choice for a more low key experience.  


The playground is rather simple with soft cushioned ground cover.  Carlyn was easily able to navigate the steps (at almost age 2), but there were many climbing features that were above her ability level.  Rosa (almost 5) was able to navigate through everything.  



The one bummer was that the slides were too hot to go down, so using the play structure consisted of the girls just going up and down the stairs....

 Overall, we had a really grand time.  The park wasn't overly busy or crowded.  Although the water was very cold, the girls really enjoyed splashing.  

The lack sufficient seating for parents, picnic tables, restrooms and shade makes this park a bit less desirable than Canton's other splash pad at Heritage.  




The girls are wearing their SwimZip bathing suits. SwimZip UV Swimwear blocks 98% of UVA and UVB withUPF 50+ sun protection. Not only that they are super cute and stylish. You can read more about the suits on our page, SwimZip - sun smart and stylish bathing suits.
