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.

Nice when its hot in Redding!

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

We're so glad you guys loved your most recent day on our slides and under that cabana, Vince! It means the world to know all the kids enjoy our rides, and that our on-site dishes hit the mark for you guys, too. We can't wait to welcome you back again next summer!

This was our first time at Waterworks Park and we had a great time. We were bringing a 6 week old infant so I had reserved one of their "Cabanas" for shade. We went on Sunday of Labor Day weekend, which was the last weekend they are open, got there at 10 and stayed until 6. We would not have... More

Staff is amazingly friendly! It's a little spendy but worth it. Thinking about making a trip back down before it closes for the year. WISH I COULD HAVE BROUGHT MY COFFEE IN!

We brought my two year old son and he didn't really have a great time. He wasn't that into playing in the kiddie pool area and was too small to go on the waterslides-even if we went with him and they didn't allow lap rides. Oh, and the food is WAY overpriced and greasy. The t-shirts were only $7, so... More

We're all about providing the whole family with a great time, so we're disappointed to hear that your little one didn't have as much fun as he could have at our place. Our kiddie pool area tends to be the perfect fit for two year olds, but it sounds as if your son was looking for a little more adventure.... More

We live between Redding and Sacramento. This is the best water park for us. We have teens and a six year old. The bigger water parks are scary. Kids get lost or there are just too many people. This is perfect for our needs and I can easily keep an eye on all the kids.

We had a birthday party and paid for an extra tickets since they $15 each instead of the regular $20 since we paid for a party package. They said any extra ticket would be refunded.

We can't apologize enough for this frustrating experience -- Rest assured, though, that this sounds like a serious miscommunication with our staff regarding our procedures, and by no means was it an attempt to gain extra money from your group. We value our customers far too much for that. We'd really love to continue this conversation with you offline --... More

Traveling with our 9 & 12 year old grandsons, we chose Waterworks to visit on a day that hit 105. The park is not new, but clean and well organized and not too big. Reasonable prices for us since anyone over 63 only pays $5. Apparently season passes are a good deal. Go early on a hot day...the concrete gets... More

We're delighted to know how much your grandsons enjoyed our park on such a hot summer's day -- there's not much better than splashing around in the water when it gets past 100 degrees! It's our pleasure to offer a discount for our lovely guests over 63, too. Here's hoping we'll see you all back on the slides again before... More
