With summer fast approaching so is the hot weather, what better way to beat those long hot summer days than by staying cool at a water park. There are several great water parks within driving distance of Texarkana but have you heard of NRH2O?

NRH2O in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has steadily become one of the Top 10 ranked water parks in the nation, according to USA Today. In fact, it's ranked #2 on the right behind Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.

NRH2O Family Water Park is situated in North Richland Hills, this 17-acres park features the world’s largest uphill water-coaster Green Extreme that is over 1,100-feet long and 81-feet high.

There are 22 water slides of every shape and size and a massive 660-foot-long endless lazy river, one of my favorite things to do at a water park. Sun-seekers will also love working on their tan and swimming in the 12,000-square-foot wave pool including a swimming hole with a 5-level water playground for the kids.

There’s even a white sand beach where guests can enjoy a game of volleyball and when you get too hot, cool off in a 5,300-square-foot-pool. NRH2O also offers dive-in movie nights, music festivals, and firework shows during the peak summer season.
