Swimming Safety and Splash Pad Tips

Don’t Forget to bring a towel and a change of clothes just in case! Be mindful that most splash pads and paddling pools don’t have changing facilities. Why not bring a picnic too? All these waters play areas are in parks or near the waterfront, so fab places to relax with a Family Picnic.

Although paddling pools aren’t very deep and splash pads are designed not to have sitting water, children should always be supervised around water and try and don’t forget the Sun Glasses, Sun Hats, Sun Screen not forgetting it needs to be re-applied throughout your stay!
