Lakes and pools are typical ways to stay cool during hot days but they may not be the best choice for children, especially the very young.
The Tiger Falls Splash Pad in Paris, Illinois, gives kids a fun option to cool off. It features tons of spouts and other water activities. The park is targeted for kids under the age of twelve and they must be accompanied by an adult. The superintendent of the park hopes that the weather will continue to attract more of the community.
“It stays full once we open it in May. Especially when the weather is like this, it’s full all the time. We’re drawing people from all around and not just town, so that’s kind of what we’re shooting for” said Chris Redman, Superintendent of Parks.
Tiger Falls Splash Pad is open every day from 9 A.M. until 9 P.M. and admission is completely free for everyone.
