River Springs Water Park-Log Rolling                    

We at River Springs Water Park can’t even begin to say how thankful we have been to see the community having a blast in our pool so far this summer! One of our newest programs “Log Rolling Sponsored by Wottreng Family Dental and Wayne, Norrid, Wetmore Wealth Management” has been having a lot of success in our facility, we have had individuals of all ages try out our logs this year. Log rolling is an all-ages activity that encourages kids and parents to play together in the pool while running on top a Key Log. It’s a unique way for participants to take a risk and try new things in a controlled environment, and develop healthy skills for life. Yes, just like a Lumberjack. Log Rolling takes place every day of the week at River Springs Water Park, Monday-Friday 7:00pm-8:00pm and Saturdays and Sundays 11:00am-12:00pm. As we progress through the summer we hope everyone with get an opportunity to make it out to the water park and give it a try!

River Springs features a Lazy River, Climbing Wall, Body Slide, Tube Slide, Zero Depth Pool Area, Activity Pool, Lily Pad Walk and a large concessions area with various snacks and beverages to choose from. River Springs is open 7 days a week, Monday-Friday 12:00pm-7:00pm and Saturday-Sunday 12:00pm-8:00pm for open swim but we offer various other programs including Water Walking, Laps Swim, Water Aerobics, Tiny Tot Time and new this year log rolling.
