If you need to cool down, you can choose one of the many options of local splash pads or pools, Liberty Park playground, or go for it all and take your family to Seven Peaks Water Park. It’s located just off Redwood Road and 2100 South. There is a wave pool, lazy river, thrilling tube rides, and kiddie areas so adults can relax.

Those who have attended the concert regularly have long appreciated the highly-curated series.  This summer you can expect the upcoming 2018 Twilight Concert Series to appeal to many diverse audiences.
