We've listed our favorite sprinkler parks around Orlando, and several are adjacent to some of the best playgrounds in the area. These spraygrounds and splash parks make for a cheap— or even free— day of entertainment, especially for little ones. Grab your swimsuits, towels, and sunscreen and enjoy some cool fun on hot summer days!
