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

 

Sunscreen
