A few weekends ago, we checked out the splash pad at Barrington Park. There’s nothing like playing around a water park on a hot summer night.
There’s no gazebo, so it probably gets pretty hot out here in the middle of summer, but, there is a play structure hidden behind some trees, so you can still have a picnic in some shade. There’s also a library across the field.
Here’s what they have at the Barrington Park splash pad:
- Two water guns: one is a blue water cannon, and the other is a yellow elephant.
- A red fire hydrant with 4 water spouts around the side. There is a black dome at the top of this red post to turn everything on.
- Three ground sprinklers. One of the ground sprinklers shoots up pretty high.
We had a lot of fun snacking on watermelon slices beside the water park and shooting the blue cannon.
Our daughter had a lot of fun discovering you could wiggle the handle up and down to make pretty waves in the sky.
(Sorry to the little girl who was a casualty of friendly fire.)
