Splash Pads In Kingston

Are there splash pads in Kingston Ontario, Canada. Yes there are, and here’s why.

Lake Ontario has a marvellous weather moderating effect for Kingston residents and visitors. The summer months can be very hot and very sunny. Sometimes those gentle zephyrs from Lake Ontario, wafting over and cooling Kingston during the hot summer months abate, and then, the concrete corridors of Kingston can get very very hot.

Enter the splash pads in Kingston. The are oases of cool water to bathe hot tootsies and whatever else you can dunk on a steamy hot day in a Kingston, Ontario summer.
