Just in case you were wondering, the splash pads are open!! I went to Stanton yesterday just to double check, and they are in fact, open. The hours of operation are 10 am – 8 pm, 7 days a week. There were hardly any kids there at 4:30 pm at Stanton, but once 6 pm rolled around (which is about the time we left), tons and tons of kids were there. I assume if you go to Old Fourth Ward or Stanton in the mornings, they will not be busy.
Also, something to note is that APS schools are released for summer May 22nd (I think), so the splashpads might start to get busier after that date.
And FYI, the bathrooms were also open. Only one stall in the women’s bathroom had toilet paper (there wasn’t a toilet paper holder thingy), so maybe bring your own if you are interested.
