An oasis in the desert.

When Surprise was being built, there was the stadium skeleton and the aquatic center. The slide is so fun, you'd think it was a place that you had to pay $35 to get in to. There... read more

A nice park though it would be nicer with less dog poop and trash. The playgrounds are large and my kids loved it. The lake is nice but more shaded areas would go well. Aside from the trash and poop it seems the folks maintaining the park very nicely.

very fun water park....great for families....age appropriate water slides and water activities. Family, especially the kids really enjoyed it and cheaper than commercial water parks if you are a resident.

This place is great.. And all we have used is the pool. We visited on a 108 degree day and the sections of the pool were awesome for the kids and parents alike. There is a good amount of shade, water slides, and lap pool for the more experienced swimmers. Great way to beat the heat!

Need to upgrade the lake near the Aquatic Center. Need to add and indoor pool or a heat pump. Need more shade so parent can seat and watch their kids. Surprise needs is a indoor/outdoor waterpark for the kids in the summer.

Took my kids here, it was a bit chaotic. There is no control. The staff really depends on the parents to help with thier children. Seemed a bit Understaffed for my liking. But it was clean.

Polite and courteous staff made the visit very enjoyable. The kiddo pool area is outstanding and very well monitored. I'm surprised that this place hasn't been rated by major media outlets.
