Took three grandchildren to this place. They had a wonderful time. Play areas, splash pads and more. Room to kick around a soccer ball; lots of things to climb and play on. Enough trees to give you shade.

I do not know (was not looking for it) Did notice that there was a club for various water activities. If you contact them they may be able to advise you accordingly.
