The temperatures are reaching triple digits, but the Crown Center fountain is out.
Kansas City has plenty of opportunities to get your splash on for those hoping to survive the rest of the summer heat. Henry has been the best excuse to throw my running clothes on and run through the sprays. It’s for him, I promise!
Here are some on my list to check out:
The sprayground off 51st and Wornall features all sorts of colorful spray guns and sprinklers. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the nearby shelters while you keep a close eye on the kids. There are big and small sprays to accommodate all ages.
John Anderson Splash Park
This park features water cannons, sprays with coordinated animal sounds, a 13-foot high whale and an I-Spy storm. Features galore!
Small but good for the little guys.
It costs money and is alllll the way in Independence, MO. but this water park has a lazy river, toddler area, slides and a playground.
