These Are the Opening Dates for Texas’ Best Water Parks
Finally some good news in Canton. As the tornado relief efforts continue, Canton looks forward to a little fun and stress relief this summer at Splash Kingdom Waterpark. We've got the opening date for Canton's Splash Kingdom Paradise Island, and the opening dates for many more of the best water parks in Texas.
You know sunny and 98 every day is not far away, and the best way to make the most of summer in Texas is to hit the water park. We can get wet instead of sweat, and if our favorite water parks allows coolers we can park that near a lawn chair and head back to home base whenever we need a snack. It's a happy day as long as we've got sunscreen. And watermelon.
