SPLASH-tastic Fun: Our Favorite Local Splash Pads for the Kids | South Houston Moms

With the warmer weather upon us, why not beat the heat by visiting one of our top splash pads in the area? Splash pads are especially great because they’re safe and shallow, perfect for little ones who are still getting used to the water. And Just a quick tip—most splash pads don’t have nearby restrooms, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead and bring a portable potty – #lifesaver! So, grab your swimsuits, snacks, sunscreen, and water bottles, and make it a great day!
