Staying Cool with Cambridge Splash Pads

As a Cambridge, Ontario native, Corina's passion for her community shines through photography and promotion of all that is great about this city. On top of a full time career and raising a very busy toddler, she loves writing, laughing and climbing her family tree.

 

Are you looking to beat the heat Cambridge? With those hot sunny rays beating down on us, why not pack up the family and head to a splash pad! The City of Cambridge has 11 splash/spray pads located throughout the city that are free to use.To make it a little easier for you and your family to cool off, we have compiled a list of all them by area and have even included maps to make your search easier. Per the city website, spray pads are all opened as of June 15th each year. In 2017 they were turned on June 9th just before a pending heat wave. Happy splashing!
