With the Summertime heat in South Louisiana, water parks are a great way to stay cool and have a ton of family fun. You'd think by now we'd have a lot more of them than we do, right? As I just found out, maybe we actually do have more water parks than we realize. I just came across this water park I didn't know existed. It looks incredible, and it's only an hour away.

 

Located in Baton Rouge, BREC's Liberty Lagoon could be South Louisiana's best-kept Summer secret. At Liberty Lagoon, you'll find water slides over 200 feet, lazy rivers, splash pads, a surfing simulator, and much, much more.

Some other fantastic things the park offers are things like aqua Zumba, water aerobics, paddleboard yoga, and kayaking classes. How awesome is that?

They also a have kid's movie night during the Summer as well.

They even have a night at the end of summer where they throw a "Pool Pawty" where you can bring your lil fur babies to play in the splash pools.

"We proudly opened our water park in the summer of 2011 and delighted in the opportunity to bring a high-quality water park to the people of East Baton Rouge parish through the BREC Parks and Recreation system. Today, we have expanded our park offering additional amenities such as our celebrated Shockwave and additional tube slides."

Now that things are finally beginning to open back up, seems like BREC's Liberty Lagoon might be a Summer "Must Do"!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
