Not too big, but big enough to have lots for all ages to do. Several slides, swim lanes, zero depth pool, splash area, sand area, volleyball, etc.

Good size and clean water park. It gets crowded though during summer vacation, but not that small, you can still enjoy it.

Came hear with my sister and our kids. Had a good time. Kids enjoyed it. It was clean. I liked the zero depth for tanning and young children. The wave pool was great.
