Magic Springs & Crystal Falls
Hot Springs, Arkansas
Magic Springs & Crystal Falls is a water and theme park located in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Not only is it an awesome way to keep cool with its expansive water park featuring thrilling and kid-friendly water attractions, but you can also enjoy the amusement park. Make sure to hop on a roller coaster to dry off between dips! Both parks are covered in the price of admission.
You don’t always have to go to a waterpark for a good time! Right at the center of Wooly Hollow State Park, located just eighteen miles north of Conway, is the forty-acre Lake Bennett – a popular recreation lake for swimming, boating, fishing, camping, and more. Canoes, pedal boats, fishing boats, and motors are all available for rent at the state park.
Tyndall Park, Benton, Arkansas
Riverfront Park, Little Rock, Arkansas
A source of free and cool fun can be found at the splash pads at both Riverfront Park in downtown Little Rock and Tyndall Park in Benton. Both parks feature covered picnic table areas, so you can enjoy lunch before or after you make a splash. Open for all ages, these splash pads are fun for the family and a great way to keep cool this summer without breaking the bank!
Diamond Springs Water Park
As you probably already know, Murfreesboro is home to the Crater of Diamonds State Park, the only diamond-producing site in the world where the public can search for diamonds. Oh, and everything is finders, keepers! You get to take home whatever you find. Not only can you dig for diamonds, but you can cool off at the Diamond Springs Water Park after working hard in the sun all day long. This 4,166-square-foot pool features geysers, sprayers, water jets, animated waterspouts, cascades, two water slides, waterfall hideaways, and more. It is a bit of a drive from Central Arkansas, but the adventure is so worth it!
