We just moved to Texarkana, and I am trying to find Summer Activities for my kids. I have checked the Library, and signed up for the Kids Bowling. However, that is all that we can find without spending a fortune. I can't believe this town doesn't have a Public Swimming Pool or two? Or more City Parks and Rec activites? I would love some information. Thanks you for helping.

The city of Texarkana TX has a summer program for the kids.

TC has Kids College, and TISD has some summer programs for kids. Check the websites.

No our city officials can't be bothered with getting the pool opened back up or replacing it with a water park. The people that don't have access to a private pool don't need any place to cool off in the summer.

There is a UK soccer camp coming up as well.

Good luck finding fun or educational things for your kids to do this summer.

every july there is a children's health expo at the four states fairground in texarkana. a lot of young children will be there. the bike club had a secretary named Dupree at one time. their website reported that Dupree had attended health expo events. he is on a website for reportably liking children too much.

I would suggest you to visit Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Texas, it is a very famous kids club in the area. Your kids will definitely have a good time there.

The movies has a movie every week for 50 cents. Look up Cinemark 14 Texarkana and Summer Movie Club.

Things to do for kids in Texarkana during the summer? Hmmm..........
No public pool, no inside gym, not much to do here, just like in the 1960s, and since then. Most people sit at home and counsel with the one eyed god, then damn anyone that isn't like them. Most public places in town just aren't safe: I've been accosted by culturally deprived inner city youth on the Arkansas side walking biking trail, and I've seen drug deals go down at Spring Lake Park, so, that's out. Texarkana is just a rickety old town, slowly decaying.

"In a 1992 letter to church authorities, DuPree graphically detailed sexual activities he engaged in between 1985 and 1992 involving 14 different teenage boys or young men."

when a person had a serial child rapist pedophile priest harassing them on a state job, they need to be able to trust law enforcement and the state agency to protect them from a crime. instead the state agency circles its wagons and protects itself from any possibility of legal liability. the state agency goes along with the hate crime defamation because the older guy sounds so convincing that he is bringing someone to task... when in fact the older guy is a serial child rapist targeting his next potential molestation target. he is a creepy older guy with M4M aggressive controlling personality.

You've been at it for years. Confront him in person. Give it up.

so there is a time limit to protection from a serial child rapist? a time limit to protection from a pedophile priest who would misuse the name of God to rape boys?...... while I am sure the child rapist appreciates that line of thinking, that doesn't do much for those targeted by crime.
