My kids really enjoy this place. It's a fairly simple fountain park. Several upward fountains and then every 20 minutes or so small cannons surrounding the park will shoot water towards the middle of the fountain.It's great way to rinse off after the beach too.

Especially for kids, but adults can enjoy the splash fountains too. I have, and I'm in my 70's. It's easy to use if you're going to the beach, or riding the Silver Beach Carousel, visiting the Kurious Kid's museum, or eating at the pizza restaurant...More

This is the best and largest splash pad I have ever seen. It was great. Good for all ages as well. The water changes around how it is on and off. Very nice area around it for sitting and enjoying with your family.

My friends and I watched children enjoying the Whirlpool Compass Fountain. It is large enough to entertain a great many children at once! Parents were sitting at the edge of the fountain while children ran and played together in the water. They happily squealed with...More

Watching the children play in the fountain is a favorite summer bluff activity for both young and old and 4 legged friends. The fountain, the music from the carousel, the tantalizing aroma of Silver Beach pizza, and a beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan.

Kid magnet, huge splash-pad that is tons of fun and every 15 minutes, 10 or so fire hoses shoot out into the middle and everyone goes nuts!

When the family wants a break from the beach, the Whirlpool Compass Fountains are such a great time. The fountains go off at varying heights and timing. The water is warm and clean. The ground is slightly padded and textured to minimize trips and falls.

This is a fun spot for kids in the summer. It cools them off and they love playing the water. Closed half the year, this park is a great summer/fall place to chill out on a summer day.

I've seen people with their dogs down in the area walking around, but I have not seen dogs actually playing in the water fountain area.
