hi all, I have been looking online for a list of spray grounds or splash areas for kids to run around and play and get wet in around Delaware northerner Or central but I can't seem to come up with anything other than pay for water parks. Are the only ones available in said water parks? None in town centers or commercial centers?

We just have the ocean and the bay, and are surrounded by water on 3 sides of the state (peninsula).

I live in Newark and I don't know of any spraygrounds. We had them in NJ. They are great, such a fun way for kids to get wet in the summer. All we have here are pool clubs, which aee pricey.

Smile love our splashpad!

My town (in CT) put one in a few years ago and I don't mind admitting that on very hot days at the beach, I, a retiree, go under the water buckets to cool off. Sometimes at low tide, it is hard to get out far enough to get wet when all the sharp rocks and shells are where you have to walk. Also, last year, I saw a little girl with some sort of disability, wheeled in by an older sibling, and she was laughing and so happy to be getting wet and cooled off. She never could have gotten in the water of Long Island Sound. Several towns in my area now have them at the public beaches. Also I guess it is easier to watch kids in a splashpad then in the water at the beach.

Not that I know of! That would be nice though. The only places I can think of that come close, would be the little water park at Killens Pond near Felton, but that gets so crowded, I would never take my kids there. It used to be so nice when I was little! Anyway, I digress. There are also a couple tiny water parks at the beaches (on the highways). When I lived in another state, we had those little splash parks, they were great. Although, I have heard of places such as these referred to as "diarrhea farms" and I can, sadly, understand why. So maybe setting up some fun sprinklers and pools in your own backyard is better anyway
