Splash Parks & Creek Spots
Cooling off in the water is essential to our hot and humid summers here in middle Tennessee. If you’re not native to the area, you might not know where all the best creeks and splash parks are, but we sure do have some good ones! Grab some towels, your sunscreen, and a few friends and cool off in one of these spots!
We especially love the creek spots in our house. I recommend you explore them ALL! From toddlers to teens, they can really be a blast! Depending on if it has rained or not, they can be super shallow all over or have deeper spots mixed in.
