Indoor and outdoor water parks seem to be in every town these days, and their numbers continue to grow. Savvy parents know that these “vacation destinations” are rarely worth the expensive admission fee. Additionally, indoor and outdoor water parks use an excessive amount of chemicals in their water to keep bacteria and germs from hundreds of visitors at bay, which leads to irritated eyes and skin. Kids love these places, though, so how do parents entice their young ones to stay home and enjoy the swimming pool in their own backyards?
One easy way to make the backyard pool more exciting for kids is to add a pool slide for action packed fun. Pool slides made for backyard swimming pools don’t reach the dizzying heights of those at the local water park, but there are no lines to wait in, no crowds to wade through, and kids can slide to their heart’s content. Add a couple of friends to the mix, and families can enjoy full days of free fun at home.
