Cool down at these Northwest suburban splash pads when temps soar

I’ve been known for pulling up to a local splash pad and unleashing a tornado toddler in her regular clothes; which is fun and spontaneous, however, I questioned my sanity afterward when I thought, “What the heck will I put on her in until we get home?”


Here is a list of summer splash pad essentials that you’ll want in tow for any visits (spontaneous or planned).


Bathing suit (With rash guard, if possible)


Sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat (Like Gilligan)


Reusable or disposable swim diapers


Flip-flops or water shoes
