Splashing around the East Valley

 

**UPDATED FOR 2017**

The east valley is home to many splash parks and pools.  Its a perfect inexpensive activity to get the kids outside in the summer months and stay cool.  My kids and I practically live at the pool in the summer.

Here is your guide to pools, spray parks & splash pads in the East Valley!

**If there is a splash park or pool you don’t see here that should be added please email [email protected] and we can get it added! the more the merrier!**
