Day two of the second major heatwave of early summer approaches… Do you know what you’ll do to keep your little ones (and yourself) cool? And entertained? Try these options to beat the heat this week:
Spraygrounds are safe and unique play areas where water is sprayed from mounted structures and geysers. There are four spraygrounds: Waterview Recreation Center, Rittenhouse and McMahon Streets; Smith Playground, 2100 S. 24th Street; Ferko Playground, “J” & Cayuga and at 48th & Woodland. Sprayground hours are Monday through Friday from 3 PM to 7 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM to 7 PM until June. From a date to be announced in June to September, all four Spraygrounds will be open everyday 11 AM to 7 PM. [phillyfun4kids note: yeah… I’m not sure whether this means they’re open at 11am or 3pm yet either. Sorry! Better get in your air conditioned car and drive over to find out!]
