06 Jul 5 ways to beat the heat in Minot!
With temperatures getting up to the 90’s, it is important to stay safe and to keep your cool.
We made a list of some chill opportunities (in no particular order) in Minot that are great for the whole family to enjoy in this weather.
1. Splashdown Dakota Super Slides
Splish splash I was taking…my family to Splashdown! Splashdown is a perfect way to grab the kids and get out of the sun. The indoor water park boasts a kiddy pool with kiddy slides, along with three giant super slides that are tons of fun. One slide even takes you outside the building and back in again! If you get bored of swimming, you can also head inside to the arcade!
Splashdown is located inside the Sleep Inn attached to the Dakota Square Mall. They are open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information call 701.837.3115 or visit their Facebook page.
2. HighAir Ground
Want to know a good way to beat the heat? Stay inside. Take the family and jump on over to HighAir Ground! This trampoline park just recently opened and is an awesome way to burn off some energy indoors! The park has basketball hoops, dodgeball courts and foam pits to bounce around on, over and into.
HighAir Ground is located right across from Oak Park at Oak Park Village on Fourth St. Call 701.837.JUMP or visit their website.
3. Oak Park Splash Pad
Water you doing if you’re not going to the Oak Park Splash Pad? Located in one of Minot’s most popular parks, the Splash Pad is a great way to get the kids outside and have fun in this warm weather while staying cool.
Oak park is located on Fourth and 16th St. Hours of operation are 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Pack sunscreen, and a towel, and you should be all set. See more here: http://minotparks.com/facilities/
4. Roosevelt Pool
Minot’s only outdoor public pool is poppen all summer long. The pool has a huge water slide –not for those afraid of heights–diving boards, two smaller water slides, and a kiddy pool all located in Minot’s Roosevelt Park, right next to the zoo!
