Can I jump in here too?

I am looking for outside water activities like water table or kiddie splash pad.

Please post links to activities that your kids loved.

We absolutely loved grandpa Beck’s Bears and Bees game, also Perpetual Commotion, Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, Grandpa Becks Cover Your Assets, Chulent, the game

More expensive, but very successful was our trampoline.

Also if you already have a swing set a new swing is exciting we got this (I think you can also hang it from a tree)

Rat a tat cat, battleship, ticket to ride, othello, monopoly bid, colour addict, taco cat goat cheese pizza, peach snaps, all my kids enjoy ages 5 - 14, plus the adults too.
Independent play - screwball scramble
These are mostly quick to play games.

Edit: I second rummikub. Monopoly deal, longer game than monopoly bid but quicker than original monopoly. Dobble.

we got a really fun, inexpensive card game on Amazon- taco, cat, goat, cheese, pizza.

It's uncomplicated, quick, and hilarious- perfect for a family game.

More votes for ticket to ride and catan Smile
For outdoors, if you have a garden an old fashion sprinkler is great in summer

Not as recent: pandemic, ticket to ride, settlers of cattan, monopoly deal, rummikub, indoor swing...

You need a level of removal. So you can attach another strap to the tree and then this on that.
