My toddler loves it here. It's good for all ages. They have a toddler zone that is smaller and better designed for their little legs but if they get adventurous they can go over to the other side made for the older ones. Tons to do and also great for birthday parties. You can't reserve a spot though so you... More

My grandchildren love this fun water park. Views of the Port Neches River. You must live in the area to use this water park unless rules have changed. Very clean No food vendors here but there are restaurants in the area. There is a picnic and playground area.

Although this is obviously a popular destination during the weekend, there was plenty of room for all the kids to enjoy themselves.

It a favorite for my grandchildren. It's a safe place for the kids to explore, hide from each other, and chase. Parents can sit and watch or join in the fun. Located next to a splash pad that's great when the playing gets a little too hot.

Clean up before you let kids play here. We found used condoms, needles and clothes. Beer cans and food wrappers every where. I will not go back.

We took our kids here when they were young. A huge playground for little kids. It can get really crowded at times. Great place to take the little ones.

Good place to go for imaginary play with kids. The huge Tugboat gave my twin boys a pirate feel like Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Great place for a pirate party also. I don't advise going when the sun is going down because of the mosquitoes. They are very prevalent after dark. Just go and let the kids use there... More
