This is a nice waterpark to take your family. It is always clean and the lifeguards are attentive. Tip: Get there early to get a good spot, or go later in the day. There can lots of day campers there and it can get crowded very quickly! There is a good snack shop with several different food options.

We have taken two young children for three years now and always have a great time. There is lots to do and safety is a big concern with a break every hour to clear the pool and help the kids wind down and snack.

Nice park but 3 times they closed for an hour to clean up mess. I try not to go back. They need to disallow babies in diapers.

The Water mine is clean and a nice neighborhood water park, especially for very young children. However, it is very crowded on weekends and Holidays. There is a long wait outside of the facility because it fills to capacity, which is difficult for the young children who enjoy it the most. We also experienced the shut downs mentioned by other...

Very appealing to young kids during the summer. Because of its popularity, it tends to get overcrowded. If you go late in the morning, you may have to wait for a long time outside before you can be allowed to enter.

i use to go there as a kid, but now its a complete rip off. Its very expensive for a full day. There are way too many kids that take a "dump" in the pool everyday from this, They always close the pool, and when they do, its for at least 2 hours. They have older teenage lifeguards that don't...

We are locals who visit here a few times each summer. The kids (ages 2-6) always enjoy it. It's a nice size, clean, convenient, fun and relatively inexpensive. The downside is that it can get quite crowded at peak hours, so you need to arrive about 15-20 minutes before open or later in the day. Lifeguards are EXTREMELY attentive and... More
