It's a common question during the summer when families everywhere are looking to keep the kids cool while staying outside! There are so many parks in the area, some with splash pads. But when do they open?! Your question is answered. Here is a comprehensive list of splash pads in your neighbourhood. If you notice that something needs updating, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Ottawa has a great list with a mapping feature so that you can find the closest one to you! Click here for that fabulous resource.
Outside of the city, here is what you can find:
Carleton Place - Riverside Park, open June 18-August 28
Almonte - hopefully one to be built at Augusta Street Park
Perth - Conlon Farm Recreation Complex, now open til the end of summer, morning til dusk
Smiths Falls - Lower Reach Park, open when 20 degrees, 10am-8pm
Arnprior - Robert Simpson Park, open now until Thanksgiving

I hope you and your family have a wonderful summer, and that you get to experience all that your community has to offer. We are so blessed to have so many fun things to do this summer, and so many of them for free!
