Summer is starting to drive up the temperatures immensely. Suddenly, most outdoor activities stop being so nice and you wish you could jump to Christmas right away!
The season is not made for kids to spend it indoors, which is why we compiled the water parks and splash pads in the city so that the whole family can cool down outside for a day.
These spray-grounds offer fun for all ages with zero-depth entries, awesome water features, large slides, concession stands, shade structures and birthday party pavilions. They also offer swimming lessons throughout the summer for children of all ages and abilities.
