I never knew what a splash pad was until a couple of years ago and I have fallen in love with them. The public ones are usually open during normal outdoor pool times, so between Memorial Day and Labor Day, but they’re almost all free! A splash pad is an area where water comes out of the ground, sort of like sprinklers, and has drains on the ground so the water never accumulates.
Here are the free (unless otherwise noted) splash pads and addresses in Utah County. To see a specific splash pad in more detail, including pictures, click “review.”
