Splash and Spray Time!
Summer is still in full swing and the temperature can get a little overwhelming. Treat your kids to a nice public splash pad in the mid-afternoon, once the dangerous heat has gone down. Toronto has plenty of free parks which have kiddy pools or water fountains in kid friendly neighbourhoods. Let the kids enjoy fun water features such as spray jets and shower heads. Keep in mind, theses play areas are unsupervised so make sure your children are being watched by an adult. Kid Splash and Spray Pads are open from May 18th to September 22nd Monday- Sunday 9am- 8:30pm permitting the weather is warm. Check out Toronto.ca for locations in your area.
Also try some amusement parks around the GTA:
- Wonderland which is home to Canada’s largest theme park and wave pool.
- Wild Water Kingdom a classic water park which also includes other activities such as mini putts and rock climbing.
- Toronto Zoo Splash Island which teaches your kids different bodies of water and which animals live in them while enjoying the waterslide.
- Harbourfront Canoe and Paddleboat rides, for the more adventurous, enjoy the city skyline from a canoe in the Harbourfront pond.
