Kids just want to have fun—and that usually means an active adventure of any kind.

Fortunately, Lowell is awash with exciting escapades for tots, kids and tweens.

You can take your kids on a nature hike in the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest. Or swimming at the Rynne Beach on the Merrimack River.

For more urban excursions, countless parks, playgrounds and splash pads make for great fun and if you really need them to get their wiggles out, Jump On In is the place to be!
