Wowza! It’s a hot one! Here is a round up of good places to keep cool with the kids around the South Sound, including places kids can splash in the water or swim and wade.
Please note that due to Covid related closures, there are NO public splash pads, spray grounds, or pools open that I know of. There are also NO lifeguards at any area beach that I know of, so please use extra caution. All the outdoor posts on this list, AND the ice cream list, are updated.
As always we remind you to be cautious in the heat, And around water with your children. Safety first!
Whether you’re too hot in Tacoma, sizzling in Sumner, or Overheating in Olympia-well, you get the idea…..I’m here to help!
Check out a beach with sand! Bring your toys!
You can also check out one of these great kid friendly beaches!
Cool off by a nearby lake!-As always, make sure to be vigilant about watching your children around water. Only some of these spots have lifeguards. I’m also not sure about Lake Meridian in Kent as there was a fire earlier in the season that damaged the guard station.
