Can we please list the area splash pads, public pools and beaches?

Even having lived in the area all my life, I am unsure of where to take the kids in the summertime. It would definitely be helpful to newcomers.

Point Pelee. So worth the drive! Bring a picnic and you can hang on the beach, enjoy the Nature Centre and walk the trails.

there is one on Drouillard as well.. new last year, I thought I heard they were going to be adding more, or expanding more into the things they've set up there! It's very much needed in the area!
