Wading river and splash pool at Saitama Children's Zoo

Wading pool Saitama Children’s Zoo – It is hard to believe it is already that time of year, but the wading / splash pool in Saitama Children’s Zoo will open for the 2018 season during Golden Week.

2018 Dates, Wading pool Saitama Children’s Zoo

From Saturday April 28th you can play in the Saitama Children’s zoo splash pool, weather permitting, until roughly the end of September. The pool is available on the days the zoo is open which is Tuesday to Sunday. The end date has not yet been set, but it is typically the end of September.

There is also a wading river near the splash pool that has water in it all year round. It is about 20 centimeters high, but it is not cleaned like the pool is so is only  suited to wading through rather than playing in. There are some stepping stones in the river which are both fun and a source of danger for smaller children!

Children in nappies (diapers) are asked not to use the wading pool. However, the main problem is the diapers themselves, so if you enter without them (and time the toilet) smaller children can also use the pool. They ask that you do not wear flip flops or any type of shoes into the wading pool.
