It is never too early to start planning what to do this summer. We all know how quickly summer passes, which is why you need to enjoy every moment of warm weather. Thankfully, you don't need to travel far to have the best time. We have a floating water park in Alberta, which is the coolest way to go swimming!

Only one hour and 45 minutes from either Calgary or Edmonton, you can visit Alberta's first open-water park. Located at Sylvan Lake right next to the lighthouse, you'll find Sylvan Lake Aqua Splash.

The colossal playground is the ultimate way to cool down this summer. Instead of searching for air conditioning, you can spend the day bouncing into the cool lake.

Together with your friends, you'll feel like a ninja as you try to tackle the inflatable obstacles. Get ready to test your balance and strength.

There are so many unique challenges like a wiggle bridge, climbing tower, and monkey bars.

Then you can fly into the air on the circus-like trapeze swing, launch bag, and huge trampoline.

Throughout the park, you'll get to scale cliffs, and even make your way up to a 15-foot tower. Or you can enjoy taking a refreshing plunge into the lake by riding one of the many slides.

This year the site aims to open mid-June on the weekends. Then by the end of the month, it will be open seven days a week weather permitting throughout the summer.

Updates about the hours will be posted on their social media, so it is a good idea to check before you leave.

If you want to visit for a full day, it is $35 a person. But half-day passes are available for $25. Or you can save your money and go for one hour for just $15.

You can also take advantage of a 20% discount that kicks in if you visit the first or last hour of the day. Plus, opening weekend and Canada day will be discounted, too.
