There are so many places to go for free or super cheap in Naples Florida. Here is a list of parks that have free or extremely cheap water activities.
- Donna Fiala Eagle Lakes Community Park
- River Park Aquatic Center
- Sugden Regional Park
- Golden Gate Community Park
- Vineyards Community Park
- Cambier Park
Fleischmann Park is free and has everything you need in a park. There is a playground with sun shades, picnic tables, restrooms, water play area, and much more. This is a great place to go after shopping at the mall, it is across the street and let the kids get their energy out. You can bring drinks and snacks with you here. Do not forget the towels or a change of clothes, they will get soaked at this water play.
Donna Fiala Eagle Lakes Community Park
This is a brand new small waterpark. It is not free, but it is cheap. Children under 3 are free. Children 3-17 are $3.00 and 18 up are $3.50. That is a pretty good price to spend the afternoon at your local neighorhood waterpark. We have not been here yet, so I am not sure if they allow you to bring snacks and drinks with you.
River Park Aquatic Center
This is a free aquatic center. There is something here for the whole family to enjoy. There is a shaded pavilion with ceiling fans. You can buy something from the vending machine or you can bring your snack and drink with you.
Sugden Regional Park
Sugden Regional Park is not a pool, but a lake. Lake Avalon has the only fresh water beach in Naples. There is a small area with a small payground and picnic tables where you can swim in Lake Avalon. You can reserve a pavilion and spend the day here. Bring everything you need for a picnic and enjoy yourself. If you check the events here at Sugden, there are a lot of free things to attend.
Golden Gate Community Park
This is another small waterpark. This is the waterpark we usually go when we do not go to the beach. The prices are cheap and there is something to do for the whole family. Children under 3 are free. Children 3-17 are $3.00. For anyone over 17, the price is $3.50. You can bring snacks and drinks with you. The have picnic tables with umbrellas for you to use. I love to sit in a pool chair under the shade and watch my family enjoy the waterslides.
Vineyards Community Park
This is a free small water play area next to the Vineyards Playground. I like to go here so Anabella can play in the playground and when she gets haot, she go into the water area and cool off. If you go during the school year, make sure you check if they are open before you go. Sometimes it is closed for school activities. You can bring drinks and snacks with you here. There are pavilions with picnic tables to use, as well as grills.
This is another free park. It is more playground than anything, but they do have 2 areas that spray water. One is in the todder side of the playground and the other is on the big kids side. It is nice when you are really hot from playing and get really hot. There are some picnic tables here, some in the shade. They also have some exercise equipment outside the playground that you can use while the kids are playing. You can bring snacks and drinks with you.
