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!

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

Fun place to go with your kids, under 12 and over 4 years old. Very expensive for the area, but if you are in this age range you can have a great afternoon with your kids. Hint, go early or after three.

Melissa M, Manager at WaterWorks Park, responded to this review

That's a good suggestion. The mornings or our twilight hours are usually less busy. Buying a season pass is a good way to save money over the season. As we are open for roughly 100 days a year, a season pass works out to less than $.60 per day. Hope to see you again soon The WaterWorks Park Family. More

Was so disapointed that this water park is closed. Since I see reviwes from jist weeks ago I was surprised that it is closed. We picked an rv site right across the the street. They didn't know why it was closed down. There were massive amounts of cars in the lot but nothing going on. Oh well we just found... More

Fun spot to take kids of all ages. However, if you have younger kids, recommend getting there when it opens and leaving before 1:00. It gets too crowded, the lines get too long and most of the older kids show up a little later. The park is clean, but a little dated. Staff is helpful and pays attention to rules... More

Thanks for the review. We are always looking for ways to make the lines more efficient and for ways to update the park. In fact this year we redecked the whole park, updated all the landscaping and recoated all the slides. Hope you'll come see us again this year. The WaterWorks Park Family. More

Fun place for older kids to adults but way to expensive to go to often. Kids have to be so tall before they can go down slides and can not go with adult. Rowdy unsupervised kids ( cut guards can only do so much... not their fault) ruin relaxing lagoon or pool..
