The park is pretty crowded and it's hard for the adults to find a seat (and the kids an inner tube). Until August 11th the park is open weekdays and that's the best time to go. After the 11th it goes to weekends (most local...More

It's a fun place for the kids. There is a fun little splash pad and climbing area for the younger kids which is nice since not all kids like to go on water slides. The pool area is nice too! I wish the shallow area...More

Great place to take the grandkids and friends for a fun day in the sun. Lots of places to sit and relax while the kids run amuck. Groupon usually has value savings during the summer.

It is small compared to Raging Waters type parks, in the middle of town, but the kids absolutely had a ball. It is clean, and well staffed with life guards, plenty of parking.

I took my grandsons here for the day last summer. It's a popular spot and there were a lot of kids and parents. It was pretty fun and I even tried the wave thing. I think I lasted about 2 seconds!

We went in June, had fun. Lots to do for most age groups. We had teens and preteens. It can get loud. Don't forget the sunscreen.

Had a great time I rented a gazebo for the family so we wouldn't be in the sun the whole time there and it was worth it. Just make sure your kids have water shoes the concrete gets real hot when your walking around

I enrolled my granddaughter in the summer splash camp for 1 week. Each day I picked her up she was exhausted from swimming, playing and just plain old having fun. She was nervous at first but then settled in quite nicely and she looked forward...More
