CALVERTON - If you're trying to beat the heat this summer, News 12 Long Island has a fun suggestion for you.

The 12 Weeks of Summer segment is featuring Splish Splash Water Park today.

Splish Splash general manager Mike Bengston spoke to News 12's Erin Colton on what makes it Long Island's favorite park.

The 96-acre water park in Calverton, New York, features 30 rides and runs from May through September.

The park is filled with wave pools, water slides and themed water attractions. Bengston says this year they have also added an interactive children's area for families.
