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. Our cabanas book fast - check out our website for more details!

Waterworks Park is open from the end of May through the beginning of September.

Stop by and start cooling off today!

We came here for a birthday party for our son. We had a blast. The park is small but none of the rides were lame. We had so much fun. And didn't have to spend a small fortune to do so. We will definitely be going back. And have decided to start coming there every year for a new birthday... More

The best part about this for me is as the Gramma I only Pay $5.00 for the whole day. If you aren't a gramna borrow some kids and treat them to this Park in Redding California. Fun for all ages!

They raised the prices which I understand but there must be no limit to the amount of people they let in. It was so crowded there were no single tubes and the lines were way to long. We were there for 6 hours and only able to ride 5 rides. Pretty disappointing. I have been to many parks and this... More

Spent a day here for my sons birthday. It cost about $90 for the four of us. Website states there is cold water for free, they are talking about the water fountains however only one worked and it was luke warm-if that. Multi person tubes cost extra, all single tubes are free. Only certain colored tubes are for certain rides,... More

While fun was had, I was appalled at how run down and dirty this place was. While it was a great reprieve from the heat of Redding it was also scary dirty. I wish we hadn't gone there.

This was a fun water park with slides for all ages and level of courage. The grounds were clean and there were plenty of life guards diligently watching and keeping rough-housers in line. My family arrived just after opening at 10am on a Wednesday and we stayed for 2-3 hours. By that time the place was getting pretty crowded, the... More

I have to say the water park was a blast. We have gone every summer for the last few years and I have to say the park seemed cleaner than ever. First time renting a cabana and it was well worth the money. We had our own locker (must supply own lock) a place to always meet and relax. Best... More

I have been to the WaterWorks Park twice now, and I had a ball. Both times I went with my grandson who is now 9. This year, my son came with us. They rode the more adventureous rides, and I relaxed in the lazy river--loved it. However, I finally broke down and rode the Raging River ride with them. A... More

SUUUUPER crowded in the Summer, but if you can go during a time when kids are in school before school gets out, you will love it!

Thanks for the vote of confidence! We do get busy on the weekends as that's when most people have time off, but if you can get here during the week or for twilight hours it's usually less busy. More
