We needed to cool off a little while we were in Tempe recently and decided to stop by and check out Jaycee Park in Tempe. There is lots to do, but very little shade at the park.
This splash pad had some fountains, circles with most, and some pretty epic sprayers. You want the one on the west side of the pad if you are in a water fight. The toddler playground is right next to the splash pad, so it might be covered in sand from time to time. There is no shade over the splash pad, there is a small ramada not far from the pad and a couple of trees, but if you want shade you may need to bring some of your own. Note, this splash pad is concrete, so it’s probably best to wear water shoes.
