  1. Two splashparks left out of the mix were the Castle Hills splashpark right in the center of the Shops at Castle Hills and the Fields at Carrollton Parkway-which are run by First Baptist Carrollton as part of their ministry, but which is open to the public when there’s not church activities ongoing. My grandson loves the latter.
