Located just south of Wichita, Kansas, Rock River Rapids Aquatic Park has three separate pools: a shallow play pool, a 50-meter lap pool and a lazy river. The highlights of the facility include nine water slides, colorful outdoor timber theming, and a 1,000-gallon dumping bucket. The aquatic center operates on a profit basis each year and has won several awards, including the 2005 Award for Excellence in Aquatics from the National Park and Recreation Association.
