Our family loves a water park, so I am thrilled about the new one in our own backyard (ok, not literally our backyard, but that sure would be cool).  The Rogers Aquatic Center opens next Sunday, May 26, but we got to go yesterday for a sneak peek.


The slides were a big hit with my girls, ages 9 and 7.  Poor Alex was disappointed he was too small to ride (only by an inch), but he was fine after he realized there were water cannons in the kid area that he could use to blast his unsuspecting mommy with cold water!




There is kid friendly snack bar where we had surprisingly good pizza for lunch.  Maybe I was just hungry after climbing up all those stairs for the water slides (bonus points for getting in my workout!), but I thought it was alright.   They have hot dogs and nachos, too, along with sodas, juice, candy, and ice cream, all at very affordable prices.  Your kids will certainly find something they will enjoy.


The Rogers Aquatic Center is at 1707 South 26th Street in Rogers.  The prices for non Rogers residents are $15 for adults, $10 for kids, and babies under 36″ are free.  If you are a Rogers resident, the prices are a little cheaper.  They have a 10 pass punch card on sale for half price just until the park opens on Sunday, May 26.  The punch card may be used multiple times by one person or for multiple family members and friends. This card is a real bargain..We’ve already got ours!  Tickets are now being sold at the Rogers Parks Dept, 113 N. 4th St.  Call 479-631-3350 for details.


They will have specials all summer, so follow Rogers Aquatic Center on Facebook to stay up to date.


We’ll see you there all summer long!  Thank you city of Rogers, Arkansas and thanks Arkansas Women Bloggers for providing this fun day for our family.
