Our community has been blessed with this fun water park that is part of the Salvation Army Kroc Center. Ray Kroc was the owner of McDonald's hamburgers and this foundation chooses various towns to build these centers. They donate a huge sum and the town has to raise the rest. It's really a fun place. They have a gym, laser tag, rollerskating, many classes are offered for a very nominal fee and this fun water park and play area is free and open to the public. They even offer free lunches to kids. I took the grandkiddos on Saturday and they enjoyed it. We packed a picnic lunch and they played until the weather turned rainy. Jack thought it was funny that we left because of the rain since we were wet anyway! Katie was afraid of the dark clouds and even though there wasn't any lightening I felt it was better to head for home. Here is a wide view of the park. It is divided into different sections that appeal to kids of various ages. I had never been here so I'm glad I now have an inexpensive and fun place to bring the kids!
There were cute features like this dolphin water thingie all over the place.
There is a special section of the park that is made for the littlest kiddos...very small water spouts that won't scare them.
Taylor enjoyed all the action water toys like this machine gun.
Sophie had a knack for orifices...could not resist exploring them when they are at face level...like this aligator..just ask Eddy the Boxer.
I guess Eddy holds no grudges to Sophie for putting her finger where it did not belong...Eddy loves Sophie.
And Sophie loves Eddy!
