The number one rule for my kids? If they are crabby… PUT THEM IN WATER! ASAP! Bathtub, creek, pool, mud puddle, doesn’t matter. There’s just something about water that kids’ brains immediately respond to, saying, ” Oh, hey, it’s fun time now! WOO-HOO!”
And now that the sun seems to be coming back (ssshh… don’t jinx it!), it’s the perfect time to hit the water. But since it’s not exactly HOT out there yet, an indoor swim is just the ticket.
So, of course, the Clackamas Aquatic Park is an obvious choice. Water slides? Check. Wave Pool? Check. Fountains? Check. Happy Kids? Checkity-Checkity-Check-Check!
BONUS: HOT TUB FOR MOM AND DAD! It just doesn’t get any more winning than that.
They even have a rock wall, cuz, you know, mixing wet slippery kids and heights is apparently a genius idea! ( just kidding, obviously there are safety measures in place! This could be great for if/when the kids need a break from the water)
They also offer a cafe for refreshments, so bring some extra cash, cuz there are no outside food or drinks allowed.
