WaterWorks Park is the best water park in Northern California. Our Redding location is the perfect place for a day trip or birthday party. Cool off with us today!

I don't think they deserve one star. I just left with my family of 6. The only thing we're there for is to hear the lifeguards blow their whistle and make everyone stop having fun. My 1 year old wasn't allowed to sit at the bottom of the slide in the kiddie area when nobody was using it, she told... More

We can understand your frustration with the situation in the kiddie pool and regarding the swim test Monya Baxter and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We'd like to clarify some of our safety policies as safety is of utmost importance to us at WaterWorks Park and our lifeguards are trained to uphold all of... More

This place was a perfect water park to drive to! The price was right for what it had to offer. Our teenage girls used a double tube that we rented for $8 to go down slides together and they had a blast. My husband and I used it to go down the one that's like a bowl and that was... More

We brought our 4th grade class to the park for some wet fun under sunny skies and we weren't disappointed. The rides were fun and able to create a few screams. Especially, the Avalanche. The wait in line whether rides, food or entrance to the park, was our biggest disappointment. I can understand the popular rides getting backed up and... More

They pack several attractions in a small location. Water is clean and cool. I would suggest aqua shoes or sandals for people with sensitive feet. Other than that I had a wonderful time.

Too much fun in one spot. Food is close by & can be delivered- I didn't eat at the park so I can't say anything about it.

It was really hot, and we were on our way back home to the bay area from Oregon, when we decided to stop for a few hours and see what Redding had to offer. We found this water park via TripAdvisor, so we decided to check out out. It was nice, up until the time when my 6 month old... More

We would love the opportunity to make it up to you if you are ever back in the neighborhood. Please contact our office at 530-246-9550. All the best, The WaterWorks Park Family More

Just a nice place to cool off and have a little fun. Always manage to have a couple shaved ice snow cones.

We love coming to the waterpark. It's tons of fun for the whole family. We have three children ranging from 9 to 12 who are all very different but they all agree they love coming here. We rented one of the premium cabanas for our last trip with a big group of friends. That was a very nice option. It... More
