Children are almost out of school for the summer and you may already be thinking about what you can do to keep your kids entertained while they have approximately two and a half months at home. 

One cheap option is a splash pad. 

We know the weather will be hot, and there’s plenty of splash pads around Central Florida where you can cool off. And with such a variety at your fingertips you can visit a new one each time you’re ready to get out of the house. 

The best part is, many of them are free and if they aren’t it won’t cost you much. 

Here are some of the best Central Florida splash pads:
