Splash Pad at Riverside Park (3311 Squirrel Ct, Auburn Hills, MI 48326, 248-370-9353, auburnhills.org)
Newly-built splash pad at Riverside Park located in Downtown Auburn Hills. Not a lot of bells and whistles to this small splash pad. The pad is FREE for residents with a “proper identification card” (driver’s license, state ID, Auburn Hills Community Center Card).
