We also enjoy Harbor Front Park in Port Jefferson. “Chandlery Waterfront Playground and Picnic Area was completed at the western end of the park. Here, visitors may enjoy a picnic lunch while children in summer enjoy the cool mist from the frog spray feature.” You can also, sit on the PJ Big Chair and enjoy the harbor by putting your feet in the sand with the view of the harbor.
Children will love splashing their way through the four kiddie areas: Elephant Slide, Octopus Pool, Monsoon Lagoon, Yellow Submarine and Pirates Cove.
We loved that there was one way in and one way out of these areas and that there was a few lifeguards in each area, as well. VERY SAFE! There is a good amount of lounge chairs and chairs in the kiddie pool areas, too. It makes for a relaxing and comfortable day while your kids have A LOT of fun!
Your WHOLE family will love Splish Splash. We hope you make it to the park this season. You will love the summer memories created here. My girls are all set to go back.
