The mercury is rising and the summer season is officially upon us here in Virginia.  We want to make sure you stay cool this summer season and make the most of summer while staying close to home at Lakeside.  Here are three ways to cool down and have a great time with family and friends!


The first place to check out is Atlantis Waterpark. Located only a few miles from Lakeside at Bull Run Regional Park, it’s a perfect spot to cool off.  The Atlantis Waterpark has something for people of all ages. From waterslides and multiple pools to sand and shade areas, it will be easy to make a day of fun at this summer spot!


Another place close by is SplashDown Waterpark, especially if you’re like us and love a lazy river. Relax and float along SplashDowns’s 770 foot lazy river. This local Waterpark also features five water areas, 4 waterslides, a “beach” area and food options!


Lastly, if you’re still looking for a way to beat the heat check out Signal Bay Waterpark. This 27,000 square foot waterpark in Manassas also features a lazy river for you to enjoy.  Signal Bay also has small waterslides that are perfect for younger children, water cannons and a beach volleyball court.


Whatever you do this summer, don’t let the Virginia heat get the best of you! Get outside and treat yourself to a fun day at a pool relaxing and cooling off with your friends and family.
