Looking for something cool to do this summer? How about getting cool - literally! At Parrot Island Waterpark there is so much to do, while staying chill.

Parrot Island is a great place to meet up with friends. Once you’ve staked your space for personal items - towels, coolers, and all those beachy items--it’s time to dive in for the day!

Grab an inner tube and lose track of time as you float down the Lazy River where it will sometimes be quiet and relaxing. Or you’ll bump into all of your friends as you wind your way through. Climb up to the top and feel the thrill as you slide 40 feet to make a big splash landing. Experience the Giant Wave Pool and imagine being on a real beach with crashing waves.

All this activity is sure to work up an appetite. If you haven’t taken a cooler with food and drinks, don’t despair. The park has a concession stand where you can refuel with all your summertime favorites. Food and 370,000 gallons water--how can you chill out more this summer?

“Fort Smith needed something new and different, and Parrot Island was just the right thing, it’s now not only good for the people of Fort Smith, it has become an attraction for people out of states!” Brenda Payne, director or sales for Parrot Island said.

In its first season the water park attracted over 120,000 guests. Season passes are available for families as well as corporate partners. It’s also a great destination for a birthday party, family reunion or church event.

And the Winner Is...

When B-Savvy invited Ft. Smith Future School students to submit artwork for the 4th quarter issue it was with a little bit of trepidation and a handful of "what ifs." But, we wanted a holiday cover that would be fresh, creative and original. Fifteen-year-old Jarred Hurlocker delivered all of those elements with his submission. Read more here.
