“Babies poop in pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

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.

“Fun, but crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

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 users. That tries your patience after waiting for a long time to get in. The Water mine is used by summer camps for excursions and that seems to work better since they go during the week.

“Excellent for young kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

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.
