Throwback Thursday: Burger Chef

Every Thursday we post a "throwback" or historical photo on Facebook of Conroe and a tidbit about it. It's such a popular feature on Facebook, I thought that I would elaborate about it here! This week we featured the old Burger Chef in Conroe.


Do you have any Burger Chef memories?

Meet and Greet Mondays: City of Conroe Aquatic Center

For this Meet and Greet Monday I visited the City of Conroe's Aquatic Center. The Aquatic Center is located off I-45 North, near Hwy 105, next to Candy Cane Park.

 
 

The Aquatic Center is a wonderful place to visit, and is the City of Conroe's very own mini waterpark. In the middle of one of the pools, there is a huge play piece with slides, ropes, a dumping bucket, and so much more.



 
 
There's also plenty of places to play for the even younger children, including a shallow area with ample seating, and a shallow beach entrance with sprayers.
 

 
In yet another area, there's two more very large slides right into the pool.
 
 
 
There's also a lap pool for the more serious swimmers.




 
 
And don't worry, there's tons of seating for picnics, parents, or those who just wish to relax and soak up the sun.



 
Make a point to check it out! It's an especially great place to get out of this summer heat.
 
If you would like more information about the City of Conroe Aquatic Center, see http://www.cityofconroe.org/departments/parks-recreation/facilities-centers/conroe-aquatic-center, call 936-522-3930, or visit at 1205 Callahan Ave, Conroe, TX 77301.

Meet and Greet Mondays: Lake Conroe Park

For this Meet and Greet Monday I visited Lake Conroe Park. Lake Conroe Park is located along the south side of the lake, sandwiched in between Papa's on the Lake and Wolfies.


Lake Conroe Park is a great place to go for families, or get togethers with friends. There are tons of picnic tables with grills, all ready for a picnic lunch or dinner.







The park also has a great beach entrance into the Lake, ready for you swimmers.





If you haven't been there, check it out! The admission is $2/person, so it's a very affordable and fun outing. For more information, check out http://www.mctx.org/departments_d-k/departments_l-p/parks/lake_conroe_park.html.
