The beauty about Southern California is the entertainment factor. Literally thousands of things to do at your fingertips. Here is a local family friendly water park, Lake Skinner Splash Pad, located in the Lake Skinner Recreational Area. This is a small scale water park on the outskirts of Temecula, California.
There are two splash pads, a park, and lots of shaded areas. A perfect place to spend a few hours with your kids on any blazing hot summer day. I recommend packing a picnic, blanket, a good book for mom, and possibly chairs. There are plenty of shaded areas to keep cool and dry. The cost is $6 per vehicle to enter the Lake Skinner Recreational Areas. The fee give you access to the splash pad, lake, and trails.
