When I moved to South Bend, IN; I knew it was a great arena to live.
I moved to an area that was full of things for my youngsters to do, plus where I knew they would be safe.
I had been told that when it’s hot, go to Kennedy Water Playground. It was a water park designed just for youngsters, however the water was only a foot deep plus there were splash pads, however what they didn’t tell me was that Kennedy Water Playground was no longer open. I was looking for the water playground, although I could not find it online. They had directions, but that was it. Then I started studying the reviews. One lady said not to waste your time going to the Kennedy Water Playground because it was closed…permanently. It was supposed to be scorching hot, I had no pool in my backyard, plus the one arena I was told was perfect for youngsters was closed. I had to go in search of something else for them to do. I found a arena in town that rented kayaks plus other river gear. I rented a pedal boat that was sizable enough for my two youngsters plus me; My friend and I had a great time pedaling around the Big Sioux River. They were splashing each other with the water plus laughing. They started out bummed because they had to stay in the home all day because of the heat. I promised to make them a tent in the family room, plus I would turn the temperature control lower so it wouldn’t be too warm. I would have never thought of pedaling around a river would make them so happy. I knew I was enjoying myself, even if I was doing most of the pedaling.
