Summer is starting to wind down and we are taking advantage of the high temperatures for as long as possible. Our favorite way to cool off in Downtown LA is the Grand Park Splash Pad.
Free Family Fun
The Grand Park Splash Pad is a great, free activity for families in DTLA. The splash area is fairly large with plenty of space for young children to run around. The best thing about the splash pad is that it is free!
Pack a Picnic Lunch
Bring along your favorite snacks or pick up lunch before getting to the park. There are a lot of tables and chairs that can be moved into the shade if needed. If you forget to bring something to eat, just pop into the Starbucks located right next to the fountain.
Getting There and Other Details
Taking the Metro Red or Purple lines to the Civic Center/ Grand Park station. There are parking lots ranging from $20 on weekdays to $10 on weekends, with entrances on Broadway and Hill St.
Don’t forget the sunscreen, a towel to dry off, your picnic lunch and a dry change of clothes for the ride home.
