Being a city so well ranked in terms of its lifestyle and quality of life, of course you’d expect a wealth of family and kid-friendly activities. Cape Coral does not disappoint with all it has to offer. For starters, simply living here is already a treat for kids given the wide open spaces and expanse of waterways. Here’s some of our top picks for things to do with the kids in Cape Coral, FL.
Eagle Skate Park
At a total of 27000 sq. ft. of ramps, rails, obstacles and a bowl, Cape Coral’s Eagle Skate Park is the biggest of its kind between Miami and Tampa. Whatever wheels they’re on, be it bike, scooter or skateboard, Eagle Skate Park is bound to provide hours of fun. The park also offers lessons, after school programs and makes provision for birthday parties.
For parents dropping their kids off, no need to to worry about lunch, as the indoor section of the center has a range of foods and snacks available for sale.
Sun Splash Family Waterpark
A true water wonderland, Sun Splash Family Waterpark will have the kids in hysterics with its 14 acres of pools and out-of-this-world water slides. They (and even you as the parent) will rejoice at all there is to make a splash in, and the adrenaline that comes with it! Some of these include the Cape Fear, Power Surge, Thunder Bump and Terror Tube. They also offer a range of aquatic programs for kids, from as little as 6 months, to 13 year olds. One visit for all of summer simply won’t be enough so we strongly recommend getting a season pass.
Sand, sun, sea! What more could a kid ask for a on a hot summers day? Cape Coral has a wide variety of beach spots to choose from, and they’re guaranteed to be a winner with the kids. There’s the Yacht Club Community Park, the beachy bank along the Caloosahatchee River, and Lynn Hall Memorial Park to name just a few. Grab the sunscreen and beach towels and go for it!
