Looking for a way to stay cool without diving into a pool or driving to the beach? There are several splash pads all over Connecticut that offer sprays and spouts for children to run through.

The Dinosaur Place in the Oakdale section of Montville has a splash pad that is one of the largest in New England. It offers more than 12,000 square feet of fountains and spouts to play in.
