Kensington Metropark – Splash ‘n’ Blast Splash Pad

Kensington Metropark Splash ‘n’ Blast is a great splash pad with water slides and many fun water features.  The park is located just north of I-96 on Kent Lake in Milford.  Kensington Metropark is fantastic with so many things to do.  They host an 18-hole regulation golf course, 27-hole disc course, nature center, farm center, beautiful picnic areas, two great beaches and scenic hiking and biking trails.

My sister in law did go down both of the slides and said that the enclosed slide was super fun and fast.

As far as the splash pad went, there were a lot of cute features.  The facility was clean and the staff was friendly.  There are concessions, restrooms, and showers available nearby.

The huge bummer was that within a few minutes both of my kids were begging to go to the beach.  (Which is FREE with park admission).  So I tried to hold them off for a little bit, which was a failed attempt of me trying to get my money’s worth out of the splash pad.  Oh well!

The Martindale Beach was nice.  It wasn’t too rocky and the plant life wasn’t overwhelming.  There is no lifeguard on duty.
