We had the plastic kiddie pools and a fudgesicle or a trip to the beach and a sandy car ride home. Well, let's do ourselves a favor and skip the sand, slap on some sunscreen, and head to a sprinkler park for the day. Here's our roundup for splash pads in Fairfield County. And be sure check out our comprehensive guide to CT Beaches and Water Fun Guide for more ways to stay cool this summer.
