“Go in the beginning of the season”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

The wave pool was nice, but the place was truly worn down.

The refreshment stand offered only unhealthy options. The lifeguard staff seems to be of a different quality than the food-service staff, who truly didn't seem to care about the icky sticky floor and the long line.

They had a huge crowd, so some customers are definitely happy. The season pass is a good deal if you live close by. It is cheaper than a pool membership.

“A park along the freeway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Running right next to the Capital Beltway Interstate 495 you can't hear yourself think, but it also has Great Waves swim park there in summer. That is a good time for the kids.

“Great running/walking/biking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

The park itself is small, but easily accessible and not very crowded most days. The oats are well maintained and lead to parks for children. It is pleasant to walk along the Cameron Run waterway between you and the 495 expressway, it is a bit of nature where you wouldn't expect it! Easy for exercise when staying at any number of the long stay hotels nearby, Holiday Inn, Springhill Suites, Homestead Suites and Marriott Resident Inn.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

Went recently with my son. We had an amazing time. The wave pool is a lot of fun. The kids fun playhouse where they have slides and climbing spaces (not sure what they officially call it) was also enjoyed for several hours. Big slides also fun but we were too scared to try the two really steep slides that looked like they were awesome fun for teenagers. The pools were all clean. Food for sale was fine -- ice cream, french fries, etc. the usual stuff. The only thing that was not so great was the main bathroom -- a bit yucko but this is a public pool and the bathroom was on par with the other public pools around. Not sure why but they're damp with wet floors and smell a bit.

Overall experience was great. Also played mini golf.
