Weekends can be crowded so try to go during the week. There is a huge area for kids, along with water slides and a large connecting pool for adults and advance swimmers. There are diving boards in the adult area.

This is a basic water park that is open seasonally (Memorial Day to Labor Day, open every day in the summer when school is out, but on weekends between those dates when school is in session). There is a zero-depth pool that is perfect for young children with various sprinkling/splashing things and a small butterfly slide. There is a competitive... More

My 8 year old and my 10 year old and I visited on a Saturday. We didn't get there right when they opened, but I wish we had because they had some really nice shaded areas to get out of the sun. My children loved the waterslides and the diving boards. Both the shallower area and the deeper area were... More

I swim for the swim team and everyday we swim there are hair balls the size of my fist. There isn't much to do and the pool is littered with trash. The diving boards are to the point of of almost breaking and the whole park is filthy.

This place is great for the whole family. There is a shallow end for the kids and a deep end for adults. There are two watersides and two diving boards.

My grand children love this pool and the splash pool area. It is ave cost for a day, but for locals there is an annual pass. This is a really safe place the children's pool area is zero entry so little ones can get used to the water and pool at entry level.

The Good: huge value, lots of variety, well maintained, good for lots of ages The Bad: can be crowded This is a really well designed community water park. The pool is an aluminum she'll which means that it's less rough than some pool floors. There are lots of varying depths so every age group and interest has tons of space.... More

Compared to Beech Bend water park, this one is a much better value. Beech Bend is larger and has more attractions but for the money, this attraction will keep the kids occupied until they are exhausted. The snack bar is reasonably priced as well - good pizza!

We took our three grandkids their, ages 8-10 this summer. We all loved it! Something for everyone. All this fun for a very reasonable price. Plus right next to the Center was a covered picnic area so we had pizza for lunch and then enjoyed all afternoon at the pool. They had slides, diving boards and much, much more. Love... More

Wow! Honestly....we have a similar water park way up here in Oshkosh, Wisconsin but this one blows ours out of the water! (pun intended) Between the splash pad, the large green space, the diving boards, the wide open spaces for regular swimming, the two large twisting tube and slide, this place has everything to keep everyone of almost every age...
