Summer is still a ways off, however, it is starting to heat up in East Texas and soon we'll be looking for some relief from the heat. A great place to do that is at your closest water park!

Water parks are a destination and are extremely close to home and offer all kinds of activities for everyone. There's relaxation just floating around the park in the lazy river, there's the excitement of the wave pool and of course the thrills and screams from the water slides that we all enjoy. Without a doubt there are plenty of fun times to be had at an East Texas water park.

The countdown is on to the parks opening soon. Here's a look at opening dates for the water parks around East Texas:

Have a splashing good time at an East Texas (and beyond) water park this summer!
