    I don’t live in the Providence area, but we do occasionally get off of Aquidneck island. 🙂 Do you have any recommendations for outdoor water parks. I looked at two today and the area seemed sketchy. No offense to any Providence residents I just didn’t feel comofortable.
    Thanks so much.

    Have a great fourth of July.

    Waterparks are located all over the city. I have personally been to the one on Wickenden Street. Super fun. Located next to a playground and across from the cozy Fox Point library (with air conditioning).
