Family-Friendly Summer Activities in Chandler

With kids out of school for the summer, it can be a challenge to find family-friendly things to do when the temperatures in Chandler reach 110+ degrees. Here are a few ways you can keep your family busy, happy and having fun during the hottest months of the year. Hang out at the pool No summer is complete without some pool time! Liv Avenida has two saltwater swimming pools and a splash pad for kids to splash and play during hot summer days. Lounge on your favorite raft while your kids enjoy the cool waters of the pool for some family fun. Please remember that we have no lifeguard on duty so all children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times when at the swimming pool. The City of Chandler also offers several public swimming pools with water slides, community events and swim lessons for kids all summer long. Admission for kids at the Chandler public pools is only $1 so kids at Liv Avenida have plenty of free and affordable options to swim and have fun in the sun. Catch a movie or play a game in The Hub We created The Hub to be a community gathering space for kids and adults to meet and enjoy time together. With a theatre room with large TVs to watch movies or play video games, a billiards table, a community kitchen with a coffee bar, a community computer and more, the cool air-conditioned Hub will provide you and your family a worthy alternative to the hot summer sun. Do a fun craft - Crafts can provide a fun and educational way for kids to keep occupied and have lots of fun indoors during the summer months. They can also offer many benefits for kids such as helping to develop critical thinking skills, build self-esteem, and engage in a wider variety of learning styles. As a parent, you dont need a PhD in art to facilitate a fun and educational craft with kids. Many times, you can use items you already have around your apartment and have just as much fun as they do. Check out the Liv Avenida Liv Creatively Pinterest board for some fun and unique crafts for kids! Attend an event at Liv Avenida At Liv Avenida, we are all about living interactively within our community. We offer a regular calendar of events for our residents to give you the opportunity to meet and interact with your friends and neighbors at Liv. Events such as our monthly pancake breakfasts, craft making events, family movie nights, family gathering events and more, provide kids and adults with fun and exciting opportunities to stay connected with the Liv community. Be sure to follow Liv Avenida on Facebook for daily updates on community events! Go to the playground While summer days can be very hot, the lower temperatures in the mornings provide a prime-time for kids to get some exercise outside. At Liv Avenida, we have a playground on our property so your kids can play right outside your front door! From slides and ladders to a giant Tic-Tac-Toe, the Liv Avenida playground is the place for kids to hang out. The City of Chandler offers several fun (and free!) parks for kids to run and play. For instance, you can visit Playtopia, an enormous play area in the center of Chandlers Tumbleweed Park with a wide variety of play equipment and outdoor picnic areas. Visit the Library The Chandler Public Library, Hamilton branch is located less than 1 mile south of Liv Avenida and offers free programs for kids of all ages. From a free Summer Reading Program that encourages and rewards kids for reading books during the summer, to regularly scheduled story times for kids of all ages, the library is a safe and fun environment for kids to go when it is too hot to play outside.
