The Downtown Aquarium is another free option for you.

Heading to the southwest side of town, enjoy the River Park Splash Pad equipped with giant fountains, dumping buckets and a misting rainbow. They are closed for maintenance every Tuesday until noon.

If you're in the southeast side, check out the Kemah Boardwalk. You can eat ice cream, listen to live bands and let your kids run and play.

There's no entry fee to the boardwalk, so the splash pad is the cherry on top.
