Beat the Heat :: Splash Pads in Tulsa

So far this August, Tulsa hasn’t had a trace of rain and hasn’t seen anything but triple-digit highs. We endured the hottest day of the year Sunday, hitting a high of 104 degrees. With more triple digit heat on the way, its nice to have an armory of options on how to beat the heat without having to stay cooped up indoors. Big Splash is always an option, but for some good free fun, you can visit one of Tulsa’s 20+ splash pads. Usually open until the end of August, the splash pads are open most park hours. The curfew for Tulsa area parks is 10 p.m.
