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.

Who needs the mountains when you can take your kids on a gorgeous hike in the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest. Or if you are more of a swimmer, kids can have fun at the Rynne Beach right on the Merrimack River.

For a quieter excursion, countless parks, playgrounds and splash pads make for amazing moments and if you really need them to get their wiggles out, Jump On In is the place to be!
