This summer if you are thinking water parks you have several to choose from.  Some of these are close and there is one fashioned by mother nature that is definitely worth the drive.  Across the state near the NH border in Newry is a naturally formed waterfall whose gradual ascent makes it the perfect waterslide. now granted it isn't very long but there are no lines and no waiting and best of all it is free. Sound like a good day? Then hop into the car and zip to Newry (see map below) on Rte 26 and keep your eyes peeled to your right for the preserve before you reach Wight Brook. There's plenty of parking in the field area near the brook. HAVE FUN, and be careful!
