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.
