Summer time Water Fun in Indianapolis
Summer has finally arrived with temperatures in the 90 degree range. Admittedly, that is warmer than I like it, but hey, I won't complain, since I wasn't sure we would finally hit 70 degrees. Last weekend officially marked the opening of neighborhood and community pools in Indianapolis. School is also out and there is no place children would rather be than in the pool this time of year.
Central Indiana has some great water parks if you are looking for a day worth of fun for the little one's. Actually, I think the adults enjoy water parks as much as the children do. Between water slides and aquatic gyms, diving pools and lazy rivers, there's a whole summer ahead to take in a water adventure or two.
Here's some favorites of my friends and family. These parks feature outdoor water fun and some have indoor facilities as well.
