Kids love to frolic in the water fountain at Easton. The rotating jets and gusts of water are a delightful way to cool off on a hot day.

Easton encourages the fun by providing towels and drinks to kids who play in the fountain.

There's plenty of shade or sun for moms and dads to enjoy while the kids let off a little steam.

Sometimes there's even family-appropriate entertainment for the frolicking youngsters. Check their website to find out who, what and when.

Runners-up: Dublin Ballantrae Park, Powell Village Green Park
