If it's summer and you like waterparks, if they haven't got too many buses bringing in the masses from Birmingham, the Point Mallard Waterpark is a great day spent! Wave pool! Olympic pool! Kiddie Splash pool area! Concessions! Lazy River! Water flumes! Clean! Really a diamond for the city of Decatur. Decatur Parks and Rec are a highlight of this... More

Took my two children there on 08/17/14 and was disappointed. To ride the waterslides much at all you have to rent a tube float for $5/person. That's after the $20 entry fee plus an $8 locker rental. There are only two waterslides worth riding (blue) and the tornado looking ride is so poorly made a rivet cut my daughter's back!... More

Just a fanatstic water park that incorperates the Tennessee River with beach into a park with zero entry wave pool, lazy river, diving platforms and boards, multiple water slides and great young child areas. Good food and locker rooms with blow up stations for inflatables. Plenty of room for everyone, plenty of shaded areas and picnic spots.

We took our 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 1-11 to the waterpark (along with their parents) and overall the children had a good time, but I'm not sure we would return. We did not realize that the waterpark was divided into two distinct areas. We parked in the lot next to the newer part and this was a mistake... More

Our family goes there every once in a while, seeing as how we leave about 40 minutes away. Once we get there, we buy our tickets (20 dollars each), the kids usually head to the speed slides, and the smaller toddlers head down with adults to the kiddie pool, and at the end of the day we usually head to...

we visited the park on an afternoon in August, 2014. the park is split in 2, each side approx 1/4 mile apart. the east side has more activities. My wife fell on a walkway which was covered with moss and water she received a few cuts. The medical staff was not helpful. Overall the staff was lazy and unresponsive. $20/... More

My children love to go here! We come here every summer. We do always try to go on half price day. You want to get there early so you can rent a tube, as they tend to get very busy after lunch. The attractions are far apart, so there is lots after walking. Bring flip flops! Also, there never seems... More

The water park is okay, over priced, poor cleanliness, very crowded with kids that are dropped off for the day. It's a good place to visit once or maybe twice, but then you won't go back.

Loved this place as a child and hate to have to give it a bad review but ..when you pay $40 admission you should be able to use their attractions. My husband and I walked from the east side of the park to the west side for the Lazy River, payed $8 for a locker, and then walked over to... More
