We love FREE – and splash pads! Nothing beats a splash pad on a summer day – swimsuits optional (you can keep your street clothes on), no sand in sight and it’s safe for all ages. Pack a picnic and find a splash park near you!

Not all splash pads open on Memorial Day, check the link before planning your trip. Metroparks require a car pass to enter to parks but you can get a free day pass with your library card using the Michigan Activity Pass (you need to do this before you arrive).
