Milford High School Indoor Water Park


Huron Valley Schools hosts two indoor waterparks as well as fitness centers at both Milford and Lakeland High Schools. This weekend we ventured out to the Milford High School waterpark so we could share what they have to offer with you.


This amazing resource is located in the Milford High School, which is located in Highland, Michigan.  The school is located south of M-59 on Milford Road near the Highland State Recreation Area.


The indoor waterpark includes a play structure with many interactive components that spray, zero depth entry, a two-story slide, a fun circular whirlpool for the kids (by the cactus in this picture), play area with an alligator, hot tub with jets (ages 16+) and plenty of room to swim.

I loved that all of this pool was easily navigated by my seven-year-old who was able to touch the bottom of the pool everywhere.  Carlyn was over her head at times, but thanks to swimming lessons at Aqua Tots, she was confident and had a blast.  Because she is under five, we kept both her within arms reach when the water was higher than her waist.


Naomi had a fantastic time going down the slides, playing in the water and jumping off the edge into the water.  She was able to explore a little independently in the splash area, but we were always right there.


Milford High School provides life jackets in many different sizes.  We let Naomi try one out for a bit.  Towel hooks and benches are throughout the area, along with two common space showers.  There are also family changing rooms, gender specific locker rooms, and community locker area.

Restrooms, swimsuit spinners, lockers (bring your own lock), showers (with soap), and electrical outlets are available in the locker rooms.


The lap pool is often used for swim meets, so if you want to lap swim, you should check before you go.


Overall, we had a fantastic time and thought that the current price of $6 for non-resident guests (ages three and up) was a great deal for all they have to offer.  We would surely visit again if it were closer. We stayed for about three hours on a Saturday, arriving at around 1 pm, where the pool was much busier, but it almost cleared out by the time we left around 4 pm.

You can get more info including the current rates online or follow Huron Valley Pools & Fitness on Facebook.

Terry Fator is Coming to The Fox Theatre March 4, 2017 {giveaway ends 2/25}

Singer, comedian and celebrity impressionist, Terry Fator will return to the Fox Theatre for a side-splitting performance on Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m.; presented locally by MGM Grand.



Tickets ($39, $59, $79 and $99.50) are on sale now and can be purchased at OlympiaEntertainment.com, The Fox Theatre and Joe Louis Arena box offices, Hockeytown Authentics in Troy (without service charge) at all Ticketmaster locations and Ticketmaster.com.

Terry Fator became a household name in 2007 when he won Season 2 of America's Got Talent with his unique brand of entertainment that combines singing, comedy, and unparalleled celebrity impressions. After 25 years of honing his skills at county fairs and venues across the country, the Dallas-bred entertainer's big "AGT" win at age 42 catapulted him into the upper echelon of entertainers and led to a multi-million-dollar deal with The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where his award-winning show, "Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment," has been running since 2009. With a cast of characters including Winston, the Impersonating Turtle; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Maynard Thompkins, the Elvis Impersonator; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor, and many others, Fator has been raking in awards, accolades and industry admiration ever since. In 2014, Fator released a DVD Terry Fator: Live in Concert, a country music CD It Starts Tonight, as well as a series of children's books including Lamu, The Christmas Kitten.

Fort Clarkston


Yesterday we visited Fort Clarkston in Clarkston.  This indoor play space is located on Dixie Highway (7127 Dixie Hwy, Village of Clarkston, MI 48346) just a short distance south of I-75 in the White Lake Commons shopping plaza (right next to Neiman's Family Market).



Fort Clarkston hosts a gigantic three-story play structure with slides, zip line, tunnels, places to climb, a rock wall, obstacles and even a tall bear slide that Rosa says made her stomach drop.  They also have a projector floor game that was not working properly while we were there, but we have used them before and they are a ton of fun. There are also games, rides, and skeeball that require the use of additional funds to operate.




There is a wide selection of food available along with a bar that serves craft beers and wine.  We did not try the food ourselves but did talk to a couple of families who did.  A couple of the families said the food was okay and one family was not happy at all with their order (or the fact that the management did not offer a refund on the items).  



There was plenty of seating available for our visit on a Wednesday afternoon, but I can see how space might be limited on the weekend.  Fort Clarkston also hires employees on the weekends to get involved with the kids to facilitate fun and safe games and activities and also to ensure the safety of the guests.  



 There are four party rooms available, which can be merged together to accommodate a larger party. Parties include two hours in a private party room and your own hostess, food, paper products and more.
