A recent article published by MSN INSIDER named Salina's Kenwood Cove, 701 Kenwood Park Dr., the best water park in Kansas.

To find the best aquatic parks in America, INSIDER consulted the 2017 Theme Index, a study compiled by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and the engineering firm AECOM on the most-attended theme parks, water parks, and museums around the world. They also looked at top-rated water parks on TripAdvisor, including individual reviews and the 2017 Travelers' Choice list of the 25 best water parks in the US.

91 percent of TripAdvisor's reviews on Kenwood Cove are very good (18 percent) or excellent (73 percent). The MSN INSIDER article said that people on TripAdvisor like the park because it is reasonably priced and great for people of all ages.

Children ages 0-2 are free to enter the park, children 3-7 cost $4, adults ages 18-61 cost $6, and seniors 62+ cost $3.
