Summer is here and we are off to check out the splash pads and spray parks in the area.  We last visited The Warren Civic Center Fountain three years ago.  Wow how time flies.  I wanted to stop by again and get some better shots and do an update on this location.

The fountain is located in the Warren Civic Center, which is on Van Dyke (on the East side of the road) just north of 12 Mile Road.

The fountain hasn't changed much since we visited last time, except for the fact that the pattern of where the water is did not change while we were there.  Last time we visited, the children were constantly chasing the water around, this was not a problem as the water was constantly flowing from the same jets the whole time.

There are restrooms available for use, but they were not very clean when we visited.  But, I will say there were a ton of people camped out in the park for a walk, so the restrooms were getting a lot of use.

Rosa and Carlyn had a blast splashing and playing in the fountain.  (We did too!)  The water was very cold, but that didn't stop the fun.

Of course, the girls are wearing their new 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.

  1. Do you know the hours for the Warren splash pad?

  2. last time i checked they were 11 am to 7 pm, weather permitting

  3. This is the place to go on a Sunday afternoon! The fountain is surrounded by local farmers market types, selling fresh fruit, veggies, bread, etc. When we visited last week there was also live music, a concession stand and a couple food trucks. It kind of reminded me of the good old Eastern market days but on a smaller scale. I especially appreciate the fact that there are no fees associated with the fountain or parking. Next time you're in the area on a weekend, stop by for a stroll, some good music, a quick bite to eat or a free cool down!
