Why You Should Go: Keeping kids cool in the summer heat can be quite a challenge. Before you get desperate with ice cream dinners and freezer pack flip flops, schedule in some serious splash time at Troy Family Aquatic Center (please use Internet Explorer for link). The family-friendly fun park will keep you and the little ones cool as cucumbers.
What You Should Know: Troy Family Aquatic Center boasts a large swimming pool with lap lanes and a zero depth entrance (like walking into the ocean), kids spray pools with a refreshing waterfall, a water tree and kids’ size water slide and a sand-filled area with a play scape and toys. Parents can get in some sun on the lounge chairs or show off their moves on the volleyball courts, and the whole fam can feast on food concession items in the shaded patio. Keep cool this summer.
