    It’s not free and it’s more than a splash park, but Adventure Reef Water Park @ the Kettering Rec Center is impressive

    The picture is the splash park at Thomas A. Cloud Park in Huber Heights. Activity Park in Centerville looks very similar. Thanks for letting me know about the splash pad in Kettering.

    I am looking forward to taking the Kids to Adventure Reef this summer. If you check out your Reach Magazine for May and June they have B1G1 Coupons!

    HI! We found a little splash pad at Central Park. It is adjacent to the YMCA in Fairborn on Central Ave. A few shoot ups and down pours with rain. My kids had a great time.
    Thanks for the complied list.

    There has been a splash pad in Englewood for years at Centennial Park.
