The temperatures are soaring and nothing beats the heat like playing in the water. Our contributor, Carissa Joy shares about her favorite park to head to for some fun water play.
I don’t know about you, but I have come to love splash pads! My favorite splash pad that I have found is at Citrus Park in Corona. What I love the most about this splash pad is the layout and variety of water features that are available. There are interactive areas with water guns and various equipment that you can turn to increase or decrease water flow to certain areas. It seems there are always kids of all ages playing at the splash pad and there’s room for everyone.
Another thing I love about Citrus Park is the proximity of the playgrounds to the splash pad. There are 2 playgrounds at this park, one for little kids and another for older kids. Both are side-by-side. There is plenty of grass and space to lay out picnic blankets and umbrellas/canopies too! It is very possible to sit in a central spot and see all of your kids, even when some want to splash and others want to climb the structures. There isn’t much shade at Citrus park so bring an umbrella or easy-up and lots of sunscreen!

We love summer for many reasons. One of my favorite reasons (besides the incredible weather, beach days and just enjoying the outdoors) why Summer is my favorite season of the year, is all of the fun summer movie releases. There is always at least one movie that we look forward to watching. One of the movies that the we are all looking forward to watching is Ice Age: Continental Drift.
The movie opens July 13th and yes we are counting down the days! Stay tuned for a fun little Ice Age: Continental Drift giveaway coming next week.
