One of our favorite places to cool off from the heat is at the Splash Pad located at the Town hall in La Plata Maryland. This free resource is available to the community every day of the week May (Memorial Weekend) through September 10 AM to 9PM.

To activate the water, walk over to the metal box and push the orange button.  (It used to be a blue circle on the ground; however the change was made July 2017.) The kids can splish and splash for about ten minutes than the water will stop spraying. If you want to stay longer just push the button again for more fun!

Playful Parent Tips

  • When it isn’t crowded we like to bring buckets for filling and small cars to bring through the car wash.
  • Morning hours seem to be the least crowded.
