Owner description: 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!

Great place for the kids too cool off because, boy, is it hot here!
There is food and beverages and shade, even though, you may prefer to stay in the water.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Our church rented the entire facility for an evening. We had a blast with about 100 people. The staff was very friendly and paid attention. When feces appeared in the stream ride, we were asked to leave so they could clean the area. No fears about safety- and we had babies through 80 year olds. We were allowed to bring in and serve our own food. The staff assisting on rides were honest about the water slides, as I was hesitant to try a few, I took their advice about which rides and chutes to try and had a great time, going beyond what I had anticipated. Having had such a good time, continually on the move, most of us were exhausted by the end of the evening. The snack bar ran out of ice cream around 8:30 pm. which was disappointing, but offered us free sodas instead. The two of us are 60 and 65! I encourage you to come with your grandchild or a neighborhood kid and try it out. We loved the experience.

“The Fairfield Inn hotel had packages for us.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We weren't going to go but the Fairfield where we were staying talked us in to it with a package that made the tickets really reasonable. We took our nieces and they had an absolute blast. There was something for all ages.

“better than expected”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

After reading the reveiws I was totally prepared for a horrific experience but the kids wanted to cross it odd their bucket list, so off I went expecting to have an awful time. Surprise! Had a blast! First of all for a family of 4 it was around 80 bucks to get in. The single tubes are free and you get them at the bottom of the rides, the double and triple tubes are 8 dollars to rent and you pay for them at the gift shop, and pick them at at the tube shack, but you get 2 bucks back when you return them. Then you are not allowed to bring food or drink in the park and it is nasty expensive, so hold onto your tickets and go back and forth to the car-I had a cooler full of goodies and fluids and lunch, and I even saw someone barbecuing in the parking lot. The teenagers were not horrible and some were even adorably sweet. Will go again next year!
