The heat wave in Mid-Michigan right now is no joke! Here are a few splash pads around Genesee County that you can visit to cool off.

With temperatures creeping toward 100 by the weekend, we are all going to need some relief. If you don't have a pool at home, a public splash pad is always a good option. The best part is no matter where you are, you probably arent far from one, and most are free (or very low cost).

I'll list a few that I've taken my kids to below, but if I missed one let me know in the comments below.

Creasey Bicentennial Park - Grand Blanc

Located at 1505 E. Grand Blanc Rd. the splash pad opens around 9am and stays open until dusk.

Bluebell Beach - Flint

Bluebell is a combo beach and splash pad located at 5500 Bray Rd, and is open from 8am to dusk.

Lake Callis Recreational Complex - Davison

Lake Callis is another lake and splash pad combo located at 1152 N Gale Rd. There is a fee to park, along with other fees depending on the activities you do at the complex. Lake Callis is open from 10am till 9pm.

Torzewski Water Park - Lapeer

Torzewski is one of my favorites on the list. There is an admission fee, but there are two big splash areas and a water slide for the bigger kids. Torzewski is located 2051 Pero Lake Rd, and is open from 11am to 6pm.

Frankenmuth Jaycee Spray Park - Frankenmuth

This is a fairly new park opened in Frankenmuth, and is free to the public. The Jaycee Spray Park is located at 279 Park Drive and is open from 10am to 8pm.

Celebration Square Splash Park - Saginaw

The Splash Park is newly renovated and open for guests looking to cool down. The park is located at 1830 Fordney St and is open from 10am to 7pm.

These are just the places that I've taken my kids, but if I'm missing out on a great (low cost) splash park, make sure to tell everyone about it in the comments below.

Stay cool during this heatwave! The high temps can be very dangerous if you can't find relief.
