Owner description: For real surf and real fun, spend the day at Kenwood Cove - Salina's premier aquatic park, featuring thrill rides, 1,400 feet of slides, a children's play area, and fun attractions for the whole family. Plunge 35 feet from one of the park's four adventure slides. Drop 12 feet then swirl around the tornado slide before falling into a pool below. Hop on an inner tube and glide 275 feet down the river slide into the Lil' Smoky Lazy River. Or, catch a wave in the wave pool. Plus, so much more! Relax, soak up the sun, and spend the day at Kenwood Cove, conveniently located in Salina, Kansas, at the I-70, I-135 interchange. The family-friendly, low-cost aquatic park features Caribbean-inspired décor, lush foliage, and crashing waves, for an authentic island experience.

“Family Fun!”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I heard about Kenwood Cove on the radio and checked it out online. It looked awesome and at $5.50 for adults and $3.50 for kids, we couldn't pass it up. We got there when it first opened and there was a line. It was worth the wait though. They have a small wave pool on a timer, fun lazy river where the adults spent most of their time, quite a few slides for all age ranges, interactive baby/toddler area, pool with low and high diving boards, and plenty of places to lay out and get some sun. Make sure you bring a combination lock if you want to lock up your belongings or you can purchase one for $5. We stayed there for 5 hours and my 7 year old didn't want to leave. We went on a Tuesday and it was crowded as the day went on. If you get there early then you can ride the slides with no lines. I can only imagine what it's like on the weekends. We will definitely be going back. For once you don't have to break the bank to take your family out for fun!

“Fun times at Kenwood Cove”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

My husband and I go to the park every year for my birthday and we are in our mid 20s. It is a blast and we get to be kids again. Even if there are a lot of people there, the lines seem to go quick and the slides are a lot fun!

“Great fun!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Last summer was the pools second year open. They had relaxed some of the senseless rules and the park as a whole was much more fun to be at. There is something for every age group at Kenwood Cove.

“Fun, Fun, Fun”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

This place is great! Something for everyone. Top notch place. Sometimes long lines for slides when they're really busy, but plenty of other things to do if you don't want to wait in line. Or try going earlier in the day, or on one of less busy days.
