Well the heat index is only 112 today….. agh! It is hot, y’all! This part of the summer can be brutal. Your kids needs to get their energy out, but you’re stuck inside because you’ll have a heat stroke as soon as you walk out the door and spending money on indoor play every day isn’t going to work.
Splash Pads are one of the best inventions ever! EVERY neighborhood needs to get one built stat. They are perfect for letting our kiddos run around, get all that energy out, and stay cool at the same time. PLUS, they are FREE!
So without further ado, here are the splash pads we have found in and around Katy that are open to the public (no gate = public in our book!)! No neighborhood key needed!
