As our Park-A-Day Challenge draws to a close, we take a moment to celebrate an activity unique to those long, hot summer days: outdoor water play! While there may have been days when the slides and swings were too hot for our Park-A-Day challengers and their children to handle, water always beckoned. They splashed about in water of all different varieties and forms.
