NRH2O is a city owned water park in North Richland Hills, Texas. It has grown quite a bit since it was first build in 1995. Some of those additions include more water slides, several sand pits, a sand volleyball court and a “resort” style pool. You will notice that not only do they have multiple lifeguards on duty in every pool area, but there are also safety personnel constantly walking the park. There are also additional lifeguards constantly walking around various pool areas checking in on the guards on duty to make sure they are okay and alert. This is pretty reassuring in a place that is geared toward family fun.
The park is divided into sections including areas that are designed for specific age groups. A couple of these sections are specifically geared towards toddlers and pre-schoolers.
