Since moving one thing that we weren’t anticipating on was having no pool like our last home. Finding the next big thing was a definite plus. Splash pads have become all the rave the last couple of years. We didn’t start using them until last year. Yes I’m that mom!. Plus it’s rare you will run the risk of dry drowning. If you’re the type that doesn’t like to get in the water this is also perfect for you! Make sure you have a rash guard and you are good to go.
I found a few free splash pads North Of Boston / New Hampshire that are fun and worth it
The heat wave we’ve had the last few weeks has been horrendous. Last weekend was a whopping 101 degrees and way too humid. Which is why we’ve been on the hunt for splash pads near us. Finding a splash pad that either has a minimal cost or free is a plus!!
14 Humphrey Road off By-Pass 28
This was the first splash pad of the season we went to and A loved it. Literally had to drag him to the car. This place is amazing! The splash pad is a great size and fenced in. There’s plenty of spots to put a blanket or lawn chairs. They also have picnic tables and a shaded area. They have two huge playgrounds. One for 2-5-year-olds and another for older kids. They have a great snack bar and offer weekly events for kids.
80 Broadway Rd, Dracut, MA 01826
I’ve heard great things about this one. This Summer they are renovating but will be open next Summer.
453 Rogers St, Lowell, MA 01852
It’s free for non- residents which is great and they’re open until 6pm.
They also offer a Summer lunch program where they could get free lunch and stay at the splash pad which they offer at McPherson Park and Monsignor Keenan (Eagle) Park.
39 Chelmsford Road
Billerica, MA 01821
It does cost $5 daily or $50 for a seasonal pass. They have a picnic area, fire pit, fitness trail and more.
Nashua, NH 03060
This also offered a wading pool for the littler ones.
Did I miss any other FREE splash pads in the North of Boston / New Hampshire line? I know there are plenty of other pools and water attractions like Bradley Palmer State Park etc! If you just need to cool off or the kiddos are dying to cool off then these ones are great to check out.
