Water Park and Water Play Options Near Florence

June 14, 2021
There's no water park in Florence yet but we do have many options within a couple of hours or less away!

Waterpark & Splash Pad Options
  • A favorite place for some water fun is taking the kids to the Waterfall Junction and it's part of the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC. It's like an upscale splash pad. They do center on kids. There are areas that are more toddler friendly so you can find the area that is best for your family to sit nearby. I love that zoo and it has a wonderful gardens area, which is where you'll find their splash zones and tree houses! Columbia, SC is only about an hour from Florence. They are only open during the warmer seasons.

  • There is a waterpark in Hartsville, SC called Neptune Island. Neptune Island Waterpark has a lazy river and is for kids and adults. It could cost a lot though if you have a big family. Hartsville, SC is about 30 - 45 min from Florence.

  • The Lynches River County Park's Splash Pad in Coward, SC is the best price for the kids! They are strict on what you wear so you can't have any cotton attire on. They will not be shy to point out that your gym wear is not swim wear. I think it's because it does clog up the system if some of that fabric gets in there. Lynches River County Park is about 30 - 45 minutes from Florence.

  • If you're planning on being in Myrtle Beach anyway, you'll be able to enjoy hotel stays that already have a lazy river! That's the joy of Myrtle Beach! The city also has a handful of big water parks that you can pick from. Myrtle Beach is only about an hour away from Florence and has so many attractions and things to do.

  • The newest additional to this list is the Splash Pad in Downtown Florence. It opens every Summer. Downtown guests and residents are invited to enjoy it in the Andrew H. Griffin Plaza at 146 South Dargan Street, Florence, SC 29501. The Splash Pad is an interactive water feature designed for children 12 & younger and includes eight spray jets and one column of water with various spray and LED lighting effects. You can read their rules here. It's a free splash page but it is only open in the summer time and between certain hours.

About Me Originally from Southern California, we had moved here when my husband got out of the military and began his civilian work at the Duke Energy Power Plant in Hartsville. I had a hard time finding family-friendly resources online in Florence when we moved here in 2013 so I started writing and taking pictures of our adventures and places we've been. This website is a collection of several years of adventures. I hope this helps you as a transplant or new mom. I have two sons who were both born in Florence at the McLeod Hospital.
