Who doesn’t love getting cooled off for FREE during these hot summer months. Take your kids to one or all of these splash pads this summer:
Legacy Park 1140 W 1100 N, North Salt Lake
Legacy Park splash pad is composed exclusively of fountains spraying out of the ground in a variety of configurations. There is a cement barrier that runs around most of the splash pad, making supervision a bit easier and doubling as a seating area, although shade is minimal. The playgrounds and pavilions are a little walk away, but the restrooms are directly adjacent to the splash pad, and they are very nice with changing rooms and outdoor showers. The water does shut off for 15 minutes of every hour, so be prepared to fill that time!
Heritage Park • 250 N Fairfield Rd, Kaysville
Heritage Park has a more traditional splash pad. There are plenty of different spray toys. and there is a lot of water action going on to keep adventurous spirits happy, Plus.. they accommodate the kids who are a little more hesitant about getting wet. This splash pad also has restrooms adjacent to it, and the regular playground is close to the splash pad with climbing equipment and slides for when the kids are needing a break to dry off. This splash pad is next to Kaysville, Davis County Library.
Ellison Park • 700 N 2200 W, Layton
Ellison Park splash pad is one of the more elaborate of the free splash pads in Davis County! With a dumping bucket, water slide, and a large climbing area, it is almost like a miniature water park. I would recommend this splash pad for kids who love getting wet or older kids. This pad is not for shy kids that are timid about getting wet. There is a regular “non wet” playground about 50 yards away.. Providing a great variety of “play structures for the kids. Ellison Park is large and has several playgrounds, baseball fields, basketball courts, football fields, tennis courts, a skate park, restrooms, and more.
