The Duck Pond

 

Bay Saint Louis Duck Pond is a great park for family fun.

Bay St. Louis did a wonderful job making a wide open area into a sweet spot.  The Duck Pond is phenomenal!  Kids and adults both love to come here.  There are benches and swings around to relax and watch the ducks play.  If you want to be more involved, the ducks love to be fed.  The park includes a great water crossing bridge complete with a small waterfall type scene. I know many an hour will be spent enjoying this wonderful scene set in the heart of Old Town.

Splash Pad in Gulfport

This park is located on  Hwy 90 on the Gulf side of the street in downtown Gulfport.  The park is pretty much a summer only park for obvious reasons.  It has two boat-like structures for the kids to climb and play and it has a great water pad.  You know, where the water shoots up out of the ground.  There is a nice bathroom too.  The kids just have so much fun at this park.  Who doesn’t love a good water day! Oh…and you might want to bring a beach chair to sit near by and watch the kids.
