“All the fun of a water park without the hassle”

The Broomfield Bay Aquatic Park

Attraction details
Reviewed July 10, 2013

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a fun place for smaller kids without the massive crowds or large scale distances to walk of a bigger water park. Plenty of activities (2 twisty water slides, 1 slide where you can sit on a tube either solo or child on lap or 2 kids, a few smaller slides, 1 nice play structure in the pool, plus another kiddie pool with more straight slides). It's nice too because little kids under 48" can sit on a parent's lap for the slides, unlike other places, so they are able to get in on the fun. It is big enough that there is plenty to do, yet small enough to keep your eye on the kids as they play in the shallower water. These are zero entry pools, so you can also pull a chair up to the edge and sit while you watch them. They have a snack bar, but you can bring your own food in, which is also a plus when trying to save $, as well as plenty of grassy areas and tables in which to spread out and have a picnic. We've always found there are enough chairs too. It is clean and he lifeguards really seem on top of things (though the last time I was there two of them were sneakily playing "Rock Paper Scissors" across the pool from one another until they noticed me staring at them...). All in all it's a lot of fun and run well. It costs $8 for a non resident, which is a little pricey for too many visits, but we visit occasionally and it's less $ than a water park. It's definitely a fun place to check out if you are in the area (I live in Boulder).

This place is a great place to go if you want the fun of a water park less the expense and crowd. The price is very reasonable and they have ample grass to relax and eat. They allow little kids on the slides on the lap of an adult and also have a great slide in the kids pool.

The slides, etc are certainly geared for smaller kids, but even my teenager likes it for a quick, fun place to cool off on a hot day.

This is the perfect place for younger kids (under 12) to be on a hot day! My kids love the slides and hanging out in the pool. I like that there is a separate pool and slides for the younger kids. Almost everything is within view so I can keep track of the kids easily. Lifeguards seem to be alert and do a good job. It is pretty inexpensive for residents and the Friday night Family night is great. Really hot days can get really busy, bit it generally slows down after the pool clears at 2.

Beautiful, clean pools. The kids pool is wonderful, zero entry with a small slide. The large pool has a great water play area. The multiple slides are fun!
