Many of the City of San Antonio-operated splash pads opened in March, but others are opening in time for Memorial Day weekend.

Splash pads are water playgrounds that typically have non-slip surfaces, which can be a safer option for kids. They have several fountains and nozzles that shoot water but leave little to no standing water.

And the best part? The majority of them are free and don’t require reservations.
