Looking for a fun and often FREE way to cool down this summer? Visiting a local spraygound is a great way to beat the heat!
The water spraying out of the fountains and interactive features provide an endless supply of fun for children. And because there is typically little to no standing water, they are safe for young children who don’t know how to swim.
Below is a extensive list of Spraygrounds, Splashpads, Spray Basins and Spray Parks Northeast Ohio has to offer.
If you know of any locations that aren’t listed, leave a comment below or email me and I’ll get it added.
