Sometimes we like to get wet, but sometimes I'm not up to the whole and-now-I-must-keep-four-kids-from-drowning deal, so instead of heading to the pool we like to hit up splash pads. And we mostly like to do it for free. Because I'm cheap.
BEHOLD. A list of all of the free splash pads along the Wasatch Front that I'm aware of, starting with...
Highland City Library Splash pad and "creek" (info here) (awesome)
(LOOK HOW YOUNG THEY WERE EEEEEP!)
(More splash pad info after the jump)
Foxboro (North Salt Lake) splash pad (info here)
Gateway Fountains (info here)
South Ogden Splash Pad (info here)
Aaaaand, now I'm tired of uploading pictures, so you just get a list of the rest.
- Herriman / Rosecrest Splash Pad
- Alpine City Splash Pad
- Riverdale Splash Pad
- Clearfield Splash Pad
- Spanish Fork Splash Pad
- Liberty Park (Seven Canyons Fountains)
- Eagle Mountain Splash Pad
- City Creek Splash Pad
- Valley Fair Mall Splash Pad
- Magna Splash Pad
- Riverwoods Splash Pad
There are other splash pads (like at the Scera pool in Orem and at Red Butte Gardens), but I think these are the only free ones. Let me know if you know of any others.
