It’s no secret, Arizona gets hot. We live in what Arizonans call the ‘East Valley’ so we are always looking for splash pads in the East Valley.
Back home, splash pads weren’t really a thing. They didn’t need to be. Summer only existed for a short time and you found a lake or a pool.
In Arizona, it’s hot so often that splash pads are a must!
We don’t have many lakes and while pools are common, they are either private pools or community pools. And if you are a parent that has more than one child, swimming pools can get tricky.
Splash pads are great for all ages and are free. Bonus.
With the helps of locals, here is a list of splash pads in the East Valley!

BONUS SPLASH PAD
Not what I would consider ‘East Valley’ but is still a pretty fun splash pad:
Fountain Park – 12925 N Saguaro Boulevard in Fountain Hills
I am only familiar with the East Valley. It’s where I have lived the entire time I have been in Arizona.
If you know of a splash pad outside of the East Valley, please feel free to share it!!
AND DON’T FORGET THE SUN SCREEN!
