Paddling pools and wading streams; the round-up for Saitama 2015/6

Parks with waterplay
Paddling or splash pools are a great way to cool down in the summer heat. Saitama has quite a few wading pools and other waterplay areas on offer throughout the prefecture. Many are easily accessible from Tokyo. Below is a list of some of the more popular ones, sorted alphabetically by area. This is just a basic list, for further details on the park, please click on the link for that park.
