Dad Builds Entire Water Park In The Backyard
Mike Palcko just ruined it for other dads. That Slip'N Slide isn't going to cut it any more. The bar has been raised. No child will be satisfied unless they too can have their very own backyard water park. Okay, let's be honest. They'll probably be perfectly happy with the Slip'N Slide, even if it doesn't feature custom-made water cannons.
More amazing than all the work Mike put into this amazing aquatic playground are what other parents in the neighborhood are saying about it. Open to all the kids in the area, it's brought together the parents in a way nobody expected. That sense of community that feels so lacking in the era of tablets and smartphones is stronger than ever in this 'burb.
And it's getting those digital-age kids outside for a change, which is so important.
