Zero depth water play areas, splash parks, spray pads and pop-jet fountains are being built all over the metro Phoenix area. With 5 months of summer, it's no wonder that splash playgrounds are one of the most requested amenities of the various Parks and Recreation Departments around the Valley of the Sun.
Unlike a swimming pool, these wet play areas have or little or no depth to the water, making them perfect for anyone who doesn't swim but wants to enjoy some cool, wet fun. Some spray, some swirl, some dump water, some have jets that pop the water at different intervals, and some have a combination of these water feature. As an added benefit, most of them are in public parks or shopping areas, so they are free!
On the following pages you'll find information about splash parks and spray pads around town. Why not visit them all for variety?** Remember, even though there's no deep water at these splash playgrounds, you still need to supervise your children at all times and follow the park rules.
**Some water play areas may have residency requirements to use the facilities.
