Some of these days are so oppressive in the heat that you may not even want to go outside. You don’t need to keep the kids inside the air conditioning to stay cool though — just head out to a nearby recreation center for some splashing fun!
On Friday, July 5th, fresh off celebrating Independence Day, families headed over to Ferko Playground to enjoy the day in their Sprayground. Besides Ferko, there are many other Recreation Center spots to cool down in Spraygrounds and Pools Here are just a few: (Photos all from Ferko Sprayground)
