Fairmount Water Playground
Head to the Fairmount Park to beat the heat on a hot and humid day. The water playground at Fairmount Park features 14 different water sprays that squirt in a cycle that is sure to entertain the kids. While you’re there you can also enjoy a picnic under the new pavilion and the delight of swinging and sliding at the playground.
Shade is plentiful at this beautiful park. Enjoy a picnic while you take in the sights and sounds of the iconic fountain. The splash pad with interactive water features is the perfect size for small children. Come on a Friday night and enjoy a movie in the park too!
