University Of North Florida

A nature filled day out for the family with woody picnic areas and a kayaking, play area and canoeing , along with a host of wildlife.

The University of Florida’s Department of Recreational Sports (RecSports) includes operation of two lake-front parks at Lake Wauburg, group physical fitness, little and personal group training, massage therapy, intramural sports, 48 competitive sports clubs, two world-class indoor fitness and leisure centers, 4 school swimming pools, outdoor rock climbing, an adventure travel leisure program, campus fields and facilities, a skate park and personnel development services for over 700 trainees who are utilized by the department’s programs.

Separate from the swimming pool and kiddie play location are the larger water slides. Several of these have a 54″ height requirement, but my 6 year old discovered a few that he enjoyed and has been speaking about for weeks! One great feature is that there are a couple of slides that utilize double rafts, so you can choose your kid … although it did make me understand that my thrill-seeking days aren’t rather exactly what they used to be! The 4-story Sidewinder slide with an extreme totally free fall was at the top of my child’s order of business, but I nearly peed my pants and was too chicken to go a 2nd time! My favorite slide was The Black Out. This pitch black tunnel speeds through twists and turns down a hillside and is the supreme in disorientation!

The Kid Zone is at one end of the giant pool, which is essentially one big rectangular shape. Mid-way down the swimming pool there are 2 sets of waterslides. 2 of the slides are tube shaped, and two are open slides that I might take my 3 year-old on my lap. The back of the pool is where the poolside parking and barbecuing location lies. This is just a large wide-open location for playing and drifting, and also where I saw more adults and teenagers hanging out if you are going kid-free.

Around 5,200 undergraduate students (or roughly 15%) are members of either a sorority or fraternity. 141 Sorority and Fraternity Affairs (formerly known as Greek Life) at the University of Florida is separated into four departments: Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), and the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). The Order of Omega has a chapter at the university.

Love spring valley! We have not been this summer yet however have delighted in swimming at the YMCA!
