Parks and Outdoor Act
Bedford proudly maintains a number of clean parks and outdoor recreational facilities for locals to enjoy. If you enjoy playing sports, you may be interested in spending a day at Carousel Park or Sparger Park for some group touch football, basketball, or even just a game of catch with some friends. Little Bear Creek cuts right through Melrose Park and is perfect for families and singles who enjoy the water. The Boys Ranch Activity Center is a large park and recreational area that is home to a number of facilities, such as Boys Ranch Park Gymnasium, Onstage in Bedford, and Bedford Splash.
Perhaps Bedford's most appealing attraction bringing in crowds of tourists and locals alike every year, Bedford Splash is a summer paradise. Its open season usually begins in May each year, closing around mid-fall. Its Central Pool season usually begins in June of each year. Bedford Splash features three different pools: a full-size adult pool, a zero-grade entry pool (Splash Beach), and a toddler pool. The waterpark's toddler pool, also known as Guppy Cove, and Splash Beach are perfect places for parents and tykes to unwind and enjoy themselves with a number of interactive play structures, small splash slides, and a lily pad walk.
