“Great for little kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Great idea to beat the summer heat. Parents can sit under the umbrellas and watch their kids at both the in water playscape and the tube slides.

“Cool Pool but could use some tweeking...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

This pool is fun, for sure, but some of the rules aren't very family friendly. The big water sprinkler house in the middle of the pool, for example... only little kids are allowed on the structure... not even parents can get on to help the kids navigate the structure... DUMB... Also, the 'lazy river' has two sections where water sprinkles down on the floaters... my sensory-sensitive kiddo HATES it... I wish they would turn it for a half hour, for sensitive kids, then back on for another half hour for folks who love it... Over all a great place to cool off in the hot Texas sun, but could be a bit more welcoming for folks of ALL abilities and sensitivities.

“Can't Beat the Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

This water park is just a community park pool so it's very affordable. It has a lazy river, zero entry pool, three story tube slides, and baby pool, and a splash climbing center. My kids love this place. However, I can see them outgrowing the place by the time they hit 13. It's definitely for the younger kids. Only down side is the snack selection is poor and there are no cooked foods, just prepackaged ones. So, pack a cooler with sandwiches.

“Fun spot for kids in Round Rock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

My 8 year old and her friend had fun here. It is smaller than what you would think of a water park, but kept them occupied for about an hour and a half. Cost was about $5 a piece so it was a worthwhile and fun activity.

“Upsetting and disturbing reception for my family”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

The park was small but fun and we started off having a lovely time, until my sister and her partner were pulled out of the water four times with objections regarding their attire. My sister and her partner at first thought it was just their clothes (they had speedo swim tops on and swim shorts), but as time progressed and it kept happening, we all started to wonder. There were plenty of people in the pool wearing tshirts and basketball shorts and it seemed like my sister and her partner were constantly being targeted. Finally, it got ridiculous as one of the managers asked her if she had female bottoms on under her shorts (they were regular swim shorts with netting). We were very disappointed and will not return. The sad thing is my family is visiting from abroad and now have the impression that Texas is an unfriendly, homophobic place.
