Quarry Splash Pad
The Quarry Splash Pad at the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park is one of Williamson County’s most popular features. The Splash Pad was formed from an actual rock quarry and it uses rocks from within the quarry to create a unique and existing water park experience. The Quarry Splash Pad is on two acres and includes sand play areas, the Quarry and the Rapids which feature water jets, waterfalls and water cannons. There’s no deep water pool areas and there’s no lifeguards. At the Quarry Splash Pad there are four pavilions available by reservations, two of which are used for birthdays. The Splash Pad is open for the summer months of May through September from 10am to 7pm. The entry fee is $2.00 per person including infants.
The 18-hole disc golf course at the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park was designed by professional disc golf course designer John Houck of Circular Production. The two mile, 18-hole course, is mostly shaded which is nice during the long hot summer months. The fee to play is $1.00 per person.
