San Diego Splash Parks

When you run into the splash park with all your clothes on, you know summer is here! ☀️💦 The pic above is at the fairly new downtown Waterfront Park. It’s one of our favorite summertime spots because:

-it’s FREE! (except for parking) -there’s a PLAYGROUND -BATHROOMS incl. family bathrooms -SNACK bar + ice cream -PARKING is a short walk (underground pay lot directly below the playground or metered street parking) -it’s EASY to manage both kids here by myself

-HULLABALOO plays here for FREE during the summertime!

-->Hullabaloo's Summer line up at the Waterfront Park:

Sunday June 24th, 6pm

Sunday July 29th, 6pm

Sunday August 26th, 6pm

Sunday September 23rd, 6pm

But if these dates don't work, he plays pretty much somewhere everyday and usually for FREE!
