Splash Water Park
Nocatee fun, like everything else, is the best of the best. Splash Water Park, which opened in March of 2010, is a resort-style water playground and a major recreational destination for Nocatee residents of all ages. With stunning new water play structures and room to relax, the Splash Water Park includes a variety of activities perfect for thrill seekers, little residents and anyone desiring a leisurely slower pace. Park amenities include plenty of opportunities for water enthusiasts, along with a sand volleyball court and a children’s playground.
For the adventurous, Rip Tide Slide is an exhilarating experience and boasts the highest water slide tower in Northeast Florida. The park’s signature high-speed thrill ride includes two slides, both offering> exciting corkscrew turns, twists and slippery slopes for two very distinct experiences. Smaller kids enjoy Splash Cove, a shallow-access pool and interactive playground with a maximum depth of 18 inches. The lagoon pool is perfect for all ages, and the Lazy Tides River is the place to relax while enjoying 450 feet of slow-moving current floating in a tube and taking in the scenery of tropical rock outcroppings and plant life, waterfalls and geysers. A rapid-tide whirlpool tucked within a corner and water spray features provide relief from the Florida sun.
The poolside Cabana is a covered, open-air venue complete with a summer kitchen great for hosting parties and other outdoor gatherings, and a full menu of food and snacks is offered by Rocky’s NY Pizza at the Sun Deck.
One of the recent additions to Nocatee’s Splash Water Park is a 330 foot zip line. At over 35 feet high, residents soar at over 37 miles per hour from the Rip Tide Slide Tower across Splash Water Park, above the Lazy Tides River and through the palm-tree canopies- to end on the park’s western lawn.
Several new additions were recently made to Nocatee’s Splash Water Park. The new amenities include an expansion with a new family pool and a children’s sprayground. Also added are additional deck space, shade and covered seating areas.
