Scottsdale Quarter splash pad
The new splash pad at the Scottsdale Quarter is a big hit, with moms and kids laying out their towels on the chaise lounges, with nearby misters, tables and chairs and shade. But wait, there’s more…valet parking is just steps away at the eastern edge of the plaza!
Spray-pad fountains with pop-up jets and nozzles that provide cooling relief have emerged over the past few decades at Valley parks, pools and shopping centers. Evaporative cooling from the fountains provides relief from the Sonoran desert's arid climate. There are a dozen spray pads in the Scottsdale area throughout city parks and shopping centers.
The splash pad is located just around the corner from True Food Kitchen, and is close to Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Coal Burger, Menchie's Frozen Yogurt and the It's Sugar candy store.
Scottsdale Quarter: 15279 N. Scottsdale Rd., SE corner of Greeway Hayden Loop and Scottsdale Rd.
