Splash Island educational water park is located at the Toronto Zoo, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It uses interactive exhibits to teach about the water cycle (evaporation, condensation, etc.); aquatic animals; water flow in rivers, lakes, and oceans; and more.

Visitors can spray each other with water cannons.
An exhibit group teaches about water evaporation in nature.
A polar-themed exhibit teaches about the states-of-matter of water: solid (ice), liquid (water), and gas, etc.
Splash Island is part of the Discovery Zone educational effort.

Exhibits teach evaporation, and how nature facilitates evaporation within plant life; and the three states-of-matter (solid, liquid, and gas), using polar bears and ice to show water in its solid state.
