Now that summer has returned to Baton Rouge, LA, we can all indulge in the local favorite: BREC’S Liberty Lagoon Water Park. Less than a 10-minute drive from Cherry Creek, the water park is a perfect way to enjoy a summer day. Now that they’re open daily for June, you can go for a swim and more whenever your heart desires. If you’re looking to go often, season passes are now available for $49.99, granting access Monday through Friday during normal operating hours. You can read more about the passes on their website.
Liberty Lagoon is chock full of special events, programs, and features. For 2016, they’re offering swimming lessons and exercise classes. The swim programs are separated into three classes. The first, Baby Bubblers, is for 6 month to 2 year olds. Water Exploration Class teaches anyone 2 to 4 years old, and general Swim Lessons for all ages are offered as well. As for their exercise courses, you can find Aqua Zumba and Water Aerobics taking place through June and July. In addition, if you’ve ever been interested in learning how to kayak, Paddle Up is a program teaching entry-level participants how to safely use and navigate kayaks!
There are also three special events taking place. Movie at the Lagoon Celebration is a late night movie that visitors can attend after hours. Taking place in the “island area” of the park, there will be concessions and room for 600 attendees for the outdoor movie showing. RocketKidz Rookies Triathlon will be hosted at Liberty Lagoon as well, and more information on the organization and competition can be found on this website. And at the end of the season on August 21, the annual End of Summer Dog Pool Pawty will take place, where pooches get to take over the pool for the day!
