Best Way to Feel Like a Kid Again

Recapture the carefree spontaneity of childhood by running through the splash pad at Washington Park on literally any summer’s day. Something about the anticipation of being blasted with that unexpected spurt of cold water sparks enough joy to convince you that you might actually be 6 years old, running through the sprinkler. The 7,000-square-foot water park has 130 water jets, all of which turn on at random and have their own light feature. washingtonpark.org.
