Free (or nearly so) Fridays

It’s time for the kids to go back to school around here but there’s still the weekends and after school and it’s still hot!

Today’s Free (or nearly so) Friday is about spray parks.  Have you checked out your local spray park?  They really seem to be the new big thing in summer fun!

Now ours in Henderson has been closed this summer due to the entire downtown riverfront getting a much needed face-lift but as I understand it, the spray park will be up and running next summer.  Until then, I’ve heard great things about the one in Boonville for those of you that are local.    It looks fantastic!  Check out the site  I am sorry to have to say that theirs is WAY cooler than ours!  But ours is nice and there’s a great playground right there too.  Henderson has just added REAL bathrooms!  That’s right!  No more port-a-potties!!!

Spray parks are a fun way for kids from crawlers to 90 to enjoy the water even if you can’t swim.  And most of the local ones are free.

So, get out and get wet!

As always, if you have a suggestion for our Fridays, please put it in the comments or send me an email at And Thanks!
