As the weather heats up, folks are looking for places to beat the heat around Cedar Park, Texas. We’ve found some of the hottest local watering holes to keep you cool this summer.
Veteran’s Memorial Park is kid-friendly fun. At 8,500 square feet, the sprawling water park features slides, a dump bucket, and a “O” depth beach area for the little ones. For more adept swimmers there are lanes for lap swimming and a dive board. If small children want to go down the big slide, they may have to do a swim test first!
Veteran’s Memorial is also dog friendly with a 5-acre dog park with pond! The highest ticket price an adult will pay to use the park is $5 – now that’s a reasonable way to stay cool!
Elizabeth Milburn Park is a park with green spaces and a climbing wall, but there’s also a pool! There’s plenty of sitting area around the pool to relax or dive right on in – with a life jacket if it suits you! There’s also a big slide for the more adventurous.
Prices are reasonable – $3 adults, $2 kids from 9-17, and $1 kids 4-8.
The pool doesn’t open until 1pm, so you’ll be able to jump right on in during the heat of the day!
Champion Park is another local park, but here you can also hunt for dinosaur bones and go fishing! To cool down kids can splash around in the splash pond or run through the sprinkler area.
And older crowd can check out Chuck’s Tubes – in fact no one under the age of five is allowed on this two-hour river run. Shuttles takes you to the entry point and from the exit point.

The river is dog-friendly so dogs can float too! Life jackets are recommended for children and those still getting their water legs.
