summer in chicago - splash pads (humboldt park, logan square, wicker park neighborhoods)

a favortie thing to do in the city, on the hot summer days with little ones, is splash pading.
here is a little guide to the splash pads in humboldt park/ logan square / wicker park / west town neighborhoods

[Humboldt Park:]
1400 n. sacramento ave
a favorite of mine, mostly because its so close to us, but also because its right by the humboldt lagoon, which has duck families and nice scenery. this playground has swings, slides, bridges, tire swing, and a bonus.. a splash pad. giant blue ring of water. pretty sure this playground is getting a facelift, but until then, we like it just fine!

[Unity Park:]
2636 n kimball ave
unity park has a great playground, and a splash pad area. this water area is lifeguarded, and you have to have a swim diaper to enter. 
(i took these photos last summer, and finally getting around to organizing. lincoln is a tiny bald man.)

2402 w washtenaw ave
no mulch here, this park is great for crawlers! there is a playground for little legs. kids and run under the water for a quick cool off and back to the slide. slip and slide.

[Holstein Park:]
2200 n oakley ave
playground, spray feature, mini baby pool and big pool. this park has it all!

1419 w blackhawk st
this takes the cake for "splash pad." slide, tunnel, tire swing; all within a shallow pool area. right next to a regular sized pool.

1425 n damen ave
a small but fun bear squirting water feature, with a great playgound and you can grab a taco at [big star's] to- go window.
