Places: Woodland Water Park
Kalispell

The valley is already heating up, so for a quick cool down visit the Woodland Water Park in Kalispell.

Test your courage and the elastic on your swim trunks while braving the two water slides. One is built for adventure as riders slide around three 360-degree turns and the other is built for speed, taking a nearly straight drop into the exit pool at the bottom.

For the younger patrons, wade the shallow activity pool with fountains and toys spilling water from above. Take a float around the lazy river on giant inflated inner tubes or test your aerial skills from one of the two diving boards into the lap pool.

There are height restrictions for the water slides and kids using the diving boards must pass a swim test.

Open swim hours are 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily and 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Times are also scheduled for adult lap swims. For beginners, swim lessons, including private lessons, are also hosted.

Throughout the summers, some special events are scheduled including a kayak demo, water carnival and a community day. Classes from lifeguard training to basic water rescue are available.

For more detailed information pick up a pamphlet from the park or call (406) 758-7812.

How to Get There: From U.S. Highway 93 in downtown Kalispell, go east on Second Street East. Continue through the large intersection with Woodland Avenue. Turn north on Woodland Park Drive.

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
