Memorial Day Weekend Marks the Start of Summer Fun and Sun


By Mckenna Rex

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of summer fun and sun, but it also marks the start of open hours at swimming pools. Many lakes, water parks, and pools are having their opening days over the weekend for LSW’s 3 day weekend. The recent rain and lower temperatures have cooled the water, but will it be warm enough for swimming?

Indoor swimming resorts such as Great Wolf Lodge and Coco Keys, always bring warm temperatures and water, minus the weather. Other Places such as the Legacy Park Community Center and LSR7’s Aquatic center are opened daily as well, and also offers swim lessons to those who need it. If indoors isn’t thrilling enough, people can go racing down body slides at Oceans of Fun or plummeting down rafts at Schlitterbahn. There is always something for everyone.


Longview Lake and Blue Springs’ beaches open offering sand and the open waters to the more outdoors-type. If You’re not a swimmer, Paradise Park is holding Countdown to Summer, A ticket package for three attractions at a low price of 15 dollars. The weekend brings opportunities for adventure (in your own way of course) and experience with your family or yourself.
