Sweet Splash Pads


Kids (and some­times adults too!) spend hours dash­ing through wa­ter jets at splash pads around the Val­ley. Find cool fun at Scotts­dale Quar­ter, Desert Ridge Mar­ket­place, Tempe

Mar­ket­place, West­gate En­ter­tain­ment Cen­ter and SanTan Village, all ma­jor shop­ping des­ti­na­tions that of­fer re­tail and din­ing op­tions, as well as a splash pad. Younger guests who visit the Phoenix Zoo (www.phoenix­zoo.org) dur­ing the sum­mer are en­cour­aged to bring a swim­suit and take a break by run­ning through the water­fall and other play fun at a spe­cial wa­ter play area. At The Or­chard Phx (www.face­book. com/the­o­r­chard­phx), adults set­tle in at this fam­ily-friendly spot lo­cated on the site of an old cit­rus farm, which to­day fea­tures a res­tau­rant, mar­ket­place, and ice cream and candy shop— per­fect for a treat be­fore or af­ter the on-site splash pad fun.
