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!

For a small water park this place is fairly nice. I highly recommend renting a cabana if you are planning on spending the day. It made the stay so much more pleasant, especially for my elderly mother and the little ones to nap. To my surprise they came equipped with a tv, a safe, and a ceiling fan. If you've... More

A water park on the smaller side. A couple of good slides but otherwise you're soaking in warm water that, in late summer, smells like urine. Not my idea of fun. Small children will enjoy it but as they get bigger they realize that there's not that much to do. I would save my money and go to a bigger... More

We found this waterpark when coming back from a long road trip that had us traveling through Redding. It was a hot day and we were at the end of a two week journey. This park offered a perfect break from the road. Slides are perfect for anyone from little kids to adults. Nothing too terrifying, just plain fun! Kids... More

I have been here a few times and every time I come here, I always have a great time. The lines can be long but are very quick. My favorite ride is the water slides. For the longest time, I was service to go on them but I ended up going on them and they are extremely fun.

We came here for a birthday party for our son. We had a blast. The park is small but none of the rides were lame. We had so much fun. And didn't have to spend a small fortune to do so. We will definitely be going back. And have decided to start coming there every year for a new birthday... More

They raised the prices which I understand but there must be no limit to the amount of people they let in. It was so crowded there were no single tubes and the lines were way to long. We were there for 6 hours and only able to ride 5 rides. Pretty disappointing. I have been to many parks and this... More

Spent a day here for my sons birthday. It cost about $90 for the four of us. Website states there is cold water for free, they are talking about the water fountains however only one worked and it was luke warm-if that. Multi person tubes cost extra, all single tubes are free. Only certain colored tubes are for certain rides,... More
