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!

Featuring a large number of water slides and rides, pools, lounge chairs, a lazy river, cabanas, and more, we are the best daytime getaway around. Our popular rides include the Cyclone, Avalanche, Raging River, three giant serpentine water slides, and the newly opened Dragon Slide! For those of you looking to relax while the kids play we have a large lazy lagoon! Gaze up at tropical palms as the slow flowing current takes you around the lagoon. We also have a kiddy water playground! Perfect for the younger swimmers with a pool, fountain, and child-sized slides.

We have lots of summertime events including Power94 under 18 parties and the always popular Ultimate Pool Party (21+) complete with DJs. Tourists and day trippers can find many hotels nearby. We offer free parking, open air shade tents, hundred of chairs and lounges, showers and lockers, in and out privileges, snack bar food and beverages, and daily cabana rentals. Our cabanas book fast - check out our website for more details!

Waterworks Park is open from the end of May through the beginning of September.

Stop by and start cooling off today!

Reason to drive to Redding.

Great place to spend time with family and friends on a hot day. Activities to suit any age group. Worth the drive.

My grandkids love a day at Waterworks Park. On most days the lines are short and the water is a cool and refreshing treat from the scorching heat in Redding. We by a seasons pass which turns out to be a great deal by Summer's end. Be prepared to rent 2 and 3 person tubes and typical high food costs

We started our search for a watermark and came across a small but nicely rated waterpark. We checked the website and they're times and open dates were unclear so we called for info for sept 12. And the operator said they would be open 10-6 and gave us pricing. We packed and drove 4 hours to what was going to... More

Oh my goodness they have the worst costumer service ever! The manager should be fired, we drove 5 hrs with a child and infant to come to this water park because the website said open through September and on all the travel websites it says open today and in Google so as you can imagine we were VERY disappointed that...

this is a GREAT place to take the kids. There is a lot to do, a good variety of water activities and lines move quick. EVERY member of the staff was helpful and the food was good at a reasonable price. We bought tickets online. I would get there at open or before noon to get chairs for your family... More

We went a few weeks ago, rented a cabana and spent the day! My kids 12, 8 and 4 years old. The park was small enough that I was able to let the older kids go off and play and could see them from most anywhere in the park. It was really nice to have them roaming freely but still... More

We were visitors from the Uk and thought it was terrific fun. The park was fairly quiet because most US kids were back at school so no queueing. I am a weak swimmer and came a cropper in the splash pool at the end of a flume. I panicked, swallowed a lot of water and was quite shaken up. Luckily... More

Not cheap but well worth the visit. $20.95 each if you are higher than 48 inches. You then hire a rubber thingy to slide around easier for $8 but you get $2.00 back when you take it back unburst! Superb staff - really friendly and competent. Unfortunately this is one of those places where they do not let you take... More

Booked a day at this water park, had an amazing day. My whole family including great grand children went, they provided a shaded area for our luncheon. The staff was very helpful and polite. Will be going again, we traveled over one hundred miles just to go to the park.
