School maybe just around the corner but the summer sun is still out in full force! There is a new trend that many cities are following. They are building splash pads in or near local playgrounds. These splash pads are great alternatives to swimming pools. A soft rubbery ground like you find at playgrounds but all the equipment shoots out water!
If your kids are not strong swimmers, these places are a great way for them to enjoy the water without the fear of deep waters. We found that these are great for our toddler!
So pack your bag and slather on the sunscreen and look up the splash pad near your neighborhood. This is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon!
