Seville Water Play Park

It may not feel like a conventional water park but the many waterspouts from the ground that randomly go off will certainly get you drenched. The best part about this water play area is the unpredictability of the water spouts. You may expect one to go off and "bam!" It erupts from behind you. There is a complicated concept behind this design; however, children only see the unlimited fun that it brings. Apart from these exciting water sprouts, there are rock climbing areas and tunnels so the kids have plenty more to try out. The BBQ and picnic areas make it a perfect place to pack some food and have a fun afternoon.
