It’s never to early to gather ideas for fun! So here are three places you and your kids can cool off for free next summer:
… Wading pools at various playgrounds in Cuyahoga Falls (Valley Vista, Oak Park, etc.). Better for toddlers, but if it’s a super hot day it’s a great place to cool your feet.
… Fountains at Cuyahoga Falls Riverfront Square. The water’s cold and it can be kind of scary for the little ones when the water starts spouting. Concessions are available. Bring empty plastic cups – kids love to put them over the holes and watch them pop up when the fountain erupts.
… Water Slide Day at Northwest (Akron) Family Recreation Center. Designed for ages 3-7, there were three of these this summer.
