In addition to a free splash pad, there is a playground, beach area and plenty of room for a picnic lunch here. Parking is free, but I highly recommend getting there early because the lot fills up fast. For a day full of free fun, stop by the Nelson Park Splash Pad this summer.

You can pack your lunch or take advantage of their snack bar. they have three, 300′ waterslides for you to enjoy. They have really nice picnic grounds, with large tables by the water!

Hurricane Harbor, Six Flags New England (Agawam, MA): From water slides to the lazy river, there is something for everyone at Hurricane Harbor. Seriously, there are too many rides for me to list them all here, but you can have a look at all the water fun at Hurricane Harbor for yourself by visiting their website. Admission to Hurricane Harbor is included in park admission, so be sure to bring a change of clothes and enjoy the amusement rides while you are there.

One of the popular rides is the Double Geronimo slide! It is a twin speed slide that is 58 foot high! You will fly down it super fast, and great for a thrill. Or go on Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror, this is a 2 person tube that descents into a twisting 40 foot plunge. It is totally enclosed, dark tunnel, so it gets you wondering what is coming next. This is a 300 foot ride sure to leave your heart pumping a little faster. They offer kid attractions and have places to just lounge and soak up the sun, or soak in the water.
