At Grapeland Water Park, also known as Black Beard's Beach, your little ones can get their wet and wild pillaging on like nowhere else. There's Shipwreck Island, Pirate's Plunge, the Captain's Lagoon, the Bucanneer River Ride and all the splish-splashy excitement kids can handle. They even offer swim lessons for the kiddos, and dive-in movies fit for the whole fam. It's 13 acres of well-kept water fun in Coral Gables that beats your neighbor's pool any day.
