***It has come to my attention that not all of these parks are currently open. Those that are listed with an asterisk are still closed due to the drought. Most are open, so have fun splashing away with your kids!
As the Sacramento summer starts to heat up, parents are on the lookout for fun and inexpensive ways to keep the kids cool and occupied. And with this heat, there is nothing better than playing in the water to cool off! Long gone are the days of playing in the sprinklers in your own backyard, as Sacramento parks have installed more sophisticated and fun ways to cool off. From wading pools to slides and splash/spray parks the options are endless. And parents and kids love it!
If you haven’t checked our local weather forecast for this upcoming week….well, let me tell you, it’s going to be HOT!
If you don’t already have plans and want to keep those kids busy running and burning that beginning of summer energy, then visit one of our local spray grounds that are now open for the summer.
