Hot Weather

Ithel Lopez, 3, makes some big splashes while cooling off at a splash pad in Catalina Park on Wednesday June 14, 2017. Weekend temperatures are expected to hit triple-digits.

Long hot days mean the kids (and you) are gonna want to play in the water. 

Lucky for us, Tucson has several splash pads for those with little ones and they've already opened for the season. 

To make them easy to find, we put them into a list. 

Let us know if we missed any of your favorites. 

Info: Brightly colored spray arches, water geysers and other water features. There are ramadas and grass in the park. Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Where: 925 N. Fourth Ave., in Catalina Park

Info: A simple splash pad with lots of space for the kids to cool off with water squirting from above and below. It's in a park, so there's also a playground, grass and trees. 

The Brandi Fenton Splash Pad offered a welcome reprieve from last summer's heat. A panel of experts offer insights into Tucson's weather at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 25 in the Tucson Jewish Community Center ballroom.
