Best Splash Pad

The splash pad (or spray pad depending on where you are) at Scottsdale Quarter has been voted the best splash pad in the city of Scottsdale.

Best Farmers Market

East Valley Mom Guide contributors did not have a ‘best of’ in this category.

A Google search brought up Scottsdale Old Town Farmers’ Market (not open in the summer).

Also in that search, I came across Singh Farms and recalled my sister in law claiming this to be the best farmer market she had attended and frequented Singh Farms often.

Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art was rated as the best museum in Scottsdale.

East Valley Mom Guide suggests attending Butterfly Wonderland.
