There are waterguns to blast your friends or enemies, tubes that get you totally soaked as you walk through them, or one of my favorite things to watch - buckets that fill with water and then dump on you.
The buckets will fill with water but very slowly. So the kids are waiting and waiting for them to dump. Some kids get bored and leave. Some kids try to get the adults to knock them over faster or throw their water shoes up to force the water to dump faster.
See what I mean? Colton keeps on looking up to see if it is ever going to dump?
And what would summer be without a sandpit filled with water from 5 inches of rain to make a waterpit. They made a game out of pelting each other with pinecones as they were digging. And the good thing is they can just hop over to the splashpark to wash all that sand and mud off! The FREE splashpark is yet another reason why Manhattan is a great place to live!
