The Best Pools and Parks to Combat This Heat
With our awesome summer temperatures, many are in desperate need of a pool. There are plenty of options, near and far, exciting and relaxing, at our disposal. Here's a list of a few around us!
Columbia Basin Racket Club right off the Bypass in Richland has its own outdoor waterpark! They have guest passes for the water park available. The park has a lazy river, slides, diving boards...this would be such a fun day for both kids and adults!
Being local and inexpensive, Memorial Pool is a great choice for a hot afternoon. They have two giant slides, big pools, and a diving board.
Just south of Tri Cities, the Hermiston Pool also gives you quite the bang for you buck. The drive into Oregon gets you slides, a lazy river, and more.
Moses Lake looks like a really fun day trip, this park sounds amazing! With everyone getting in for $10 or less, I think it'd be worth the drive. Surf simulator, slides, lazy river...sounds like a blast!
A little further of a drive will get you a quite a bit bigger of a park. Splash down has serious rides and slides (the Fastball having a six story span) -- this would definitely be an awesome day trip with friends and family.
Everyone knows Silverwood Theme Park, but its water park is not to be overlooked. Regular admission gets you into both the theme park and water park. They have all the classics plus the new Riptide Racer. A trip to Silverwood is also an exciting time.
