Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - With temperatures around the state hitting the 90's and 100's, Texans everywhere are looking for a way to keep cool.

Parks around the state offer a variety of swimming options such as spring-fed rivers, lakes, and Gulf water to help the entire family stay cool and enjoy what Texas' natural resources have to offer.

Near Dallas, Eisenhower State Park, Fairfield Lake State Park and Lake Mineral Wells State Park and Trailway offer park visitors a chance to swim in the soothing waters of those lakes, cool off and enjoy a break from the bustle of the city.

No matter where you swim, visitors must always be aware of their surroundings and environmental conditions and follow basic swimming safety tips. Tips include recognizing the importance of wearing a life jacket, staying hydrated and swimming in designated swimming areas.

Visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website for a list of parks around the state that offer swimming.
