From Saturday April 27th 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 or first week in October.

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.
