Water Parks and Swimming

If you’re a “water person” you’ll think Arlington is a World of Wonderful for sure! We are surrounded by lake and rivers, and that’s just a drop in the bucket. Our water theme parks and swimming pools are always refreshing.  

Big Splashes at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor

The big kahuna of DFW’s waterparks is Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. This watery playground lets you splish and splash on more than 20 slides and attractions. Thrill riders will have plenty to choose from with full-throttle slides like the Der Stuka, which is a 72-foot free fall slide. Maximize your suntan time with a leisurely float down the Lazy River or pretend like you’re a celeb with a rented cabana.

Arlington Parks and Swimming spots

The Arlington Parks & Recreation Department also offers aquatic awesomeness with lap pools, diving areas, twisty water slides, interactive spray pads, playgrounds and more. They even have a summer Dive-In Movie series!

With all of these options, isn’t it time to get drenched?
