Beat the heat at these splash pads in Southern Nevada

As temperatures continue to rise in the Las Vegas Valley, the need for a place to cool down quickly is almost a necessity.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning through Friday, with temperatures expected to hit 112. The forcast high for Thursday is 113.

Clark County has opened cooling stations throughout the valley to help residents cool down and escape the high temperatures.

Residents also can cool down at over 60 parks in Southern Nevada that include splash pads.

Splash pads maintained by the city of Las Vegas are open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., with the exception of parks located near a school. Those parks are open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Splash pads in Henderson are available from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Heritage Park also features Bark Park — a splash pad specifically for dogs — open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Here is a list of parks that include splash pads throughout Southern Nevada:
