Find a Splash Pad Near You!

I think what has been great about moving to a new state, is discovering fun places to enjoy as a family.  I remember seeing splash pads while I was growing up, but we didn’t have them in our hometown, because we had a beautiful beach to go to instead.  It gets pretty warm and humid in Ohio, so on those hot summer days we are always looking for something fun to do outside, that can also keep us cool!

Carter loves the water.  I even have a hard time getting him out of the bathtub sometimes!  One day I decided to google where to find some playgrounds that we could take Carter to, and I found the Fred Greenwood Park in Medina, Ohio.  Little did I know this would be a total “mom win” for myself, because it doubles as a splash pad too!  We’ve been there several times already, and have had a blast.  If you have little ones who love the water, find a splash pad near you for a great summer day activity!


About Alyssa Janis

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!

    With “Sunrise Side” connections but born and raised in NE Ohio, I was so excited to hear you were heading to OH. We have already spread the news to all of our fellow Browns fans, to add “Janis” to their list of favorites! I also was anxious to hear that you and your family were settling in OH well. This splash pad sounds amazing! Also, if you are in the area of Beachwood, OH….you may wish to check out Preston’s Hope Playground (check FB) if you haven’t already. It is a FANTASTIC place for little ones! Wear lots of sunscreen and remember it is even a great place for a cooler or cloudy day because of the sun. But it is well worth the trip to check it out! And it is FREE!
