A whole new summer fun experience is coming to Fun Forest Park in Tyler for the summer of 2019!

Kids and adults will be able to slide down new twisty, turny slides and race down some new body slides in a new tropical themed water park at Fun Forest Park. The Tyler City Council recently approved the improvements for Fun Forest Park and will be replacing the current splash pad at the park.

Work on the $266,000 project is expected to get underway soon with hopes of having the project completed just in time for the pools' summer time opening in May 2019. Once complete the new water play area will feature and tropical themed kids play area, three enclosed body slides, two open slides, a four lane racing slide, a 115 gallon tipping bucket and tipping pineapples (according to renderings provided to the Tyler City Council).

This will be something kids all around will be looking forward to this summer!
