As part of Seattle’s water conservation effort, the city encourages people to use public wading pools and spray parks rather than fill up kiddy pools or use backyard sprinklers at home. Not only are spray parks are a fun way to see more of the city and be more involved in your neighborhood, they’re easier on the environment. We’ll make it through this heat.
