Five Splash Pads in Tucson ~ Marana Splash Pad Grand Opening 7/31/15

There are pools everywhere in Tucson but when you want your kids, especially younger kids to cool off while having a splashy time, you head to a splash pad. 
The following five splash pads are a great way to do just that, especially during the scorching, summer months.

The Grand Opening is 7/31/15 at 10am and we will be heading over to check it out! It looks like it can only be a wonderful, wet experience based on the pictures and the brand-spankin' newness. It may be very busy because of that too though ;)

We have gone to this park many times over the years for the splash pad and other activities. This splash pad is a great place to hold a birthday party in the summertime. We have been to those as well. If the kids want to dry off a little bit the playground area is very close by, so make a day of it!
