Splash Parks
are a great way for parents with young kids to get out of the house and cool off without the stress (and mess) of the beach.  Here are 5 splash pads we found on the South Shore.  Did we miss your favorite spot?  Let us know, we’d love to add it! 

Petersen Splash Pad at Watson Park
Gordon Road, Braintree

The splash pad is a 4,000-square-foot seasonal water play area adjacent to the playground at Watson Park. It has a flat surface equipped with a system of sprinklers and hoses to provide fun and cool relief on hot summer days.  Get directions.
