An employee of the park threw open a door, caught the toe nail of my 12 year old, ripped it almost completely off. Bloody mess. The lifeguards wrapped it at their first aid office. We sought proper medical attention from an urgent care client. Sent...More

Love the place. Lazy river, giant slide, kids pools, lawns, chairs, big deck and seating area with zoo and park and train ride nearby. This is a great park for families, dates, solo, etc.

The Cove was clean, the personnel was friendly and I felt safe having my grandchildren there. It does get really crowded, although there is lots of room! Don't let the parking lot fool you!!!

Lazy river with tubes. Big slides. Decent price for admission. Did get crowded later in the afternoon. Did not eat there so can't rate the food.

Every time we go to the pool it's at least $40. for 2 adults and 3 kids. Can't afford snack bar after entry fee. The water is always cold! And they don't have any specifics for adults.

This is the best pool in the area, but compared to other cities is overpriced & closes early. We always went on family night, tickets are cheaper then. Also on Family Night they are open till 8 pm, normally they close at 6 pm. How...More
