4 Ways to Cool Down

Grab the goggles! Here are several fun ways to cool down this summer.

Noelridge Aquatic Center is great for families with a large water play feature and sand play area.

Thomas Park Splash Pad in Marion is a favorite of Cedar Rapids Mom’s Blog. “You could spend the whole day here. Your kids will want to keep running between the splash pad, sandbox and playground!”

How about renting a paddle boat, canoe, or kayak for use in the backwaters of the Wapsipinicon River within Pinicon Ridge Park just north of Cedar Rapids in Central City?

Drop your kayak in Cedar Lake for a leisurely paddle around the lake followed by a cool drink at Sag Wagon as the sun sets with downtown Cedar Rapids providing a beautiful backdrop.
