Splash Pads in Columbus - Columbus Moms Network

When the hot weather arrives, and you’re looking to cool off, look no further then some of the free Splash Pads in Columbus!  Be sure to pack the following for a successful splash pad experience: sunscreen, sunglasses and/or hats, towels, an extra change of clothes, water and of course lots of snacks! Many splash pads are open until Labor Day or longer so I will update this post as I find information on opening dates for the season. I recommend double checking hours of operation before heading out.
