Water Works Park

151 North Boulder Drive

Waterworks Park-Coolest Place in Redding. We have all the thrills and spills you want in a water amusement park. We have rides for all ages from the extreme Avalanche to the Kiddie play area. Our tropical themed park is ready for summer fun. With numerous life guards and ride attendants it´s the place to be cool, safe, and fun.


The history of waterworks park in Redding California is one of ups and downs of shaky beginnings and powerful surges with nearly as many twists and turns as a ride of one of it´s key attractions, the cork screw, and flume ride. However the park now enjoys a recent past of powerful new attractions and a great future with exciting expansions. The park opened on time and on budget in the spring of 1985.

The park was designed in what was considered to be an optimum location. Located within the city limits of Redding, population 80,000 Waterworks park is on Highway 299 and Interstate 5. The main freeway connecting Seattle to San Diego. It sits on about eight acres of land with a stream running through it. The park is seven miles south of Lake Shasta, one of the largest recreational lakes in California and ten miles east of Whiskeytown Lake, one of the prettiest. It is two and a half hours drive from Sacramento to the South, the same drive North to Medford Oregon and three hours to Eureka on the pacific coast and three and a half to Reno Nevada on the East.

For three years we bought season passes every year hoping it was going to be clean organized and safe the third year was the worst we've never bought season passes sense. Opening day this year we went with my kids class it was filthy dirty and the workers are rude and a girl serving ice cream grabbed her crotch every scoop she put on my ice cream cone. I know it's young kids but somebody needs to be a leader and teach these kids how to do their job properly. And the owner of Water Works park should make sure that it's clean and sanitary before opening the doors to public. We had two kids go home throwing up sick after being at Waterworks for 2 and 1/2 hours.

The wave pool is a great addition! They have added more lounging chairs and tables with chairs and umbrellas! Definitely worth it. Not a big city water park, but great for a couple hours or a whole day of fun!!

In 2018 it’s not that hard to be efficient. Water works check-in/ticket process for the season pass is anything but efficient. Waited in line after getting there early for about 25 minutes with little kids. Glad we only have to do that once! The line wasn’t even very long, it just took forever. Once you’re in the park it’s good enough for what it is. Life guards are a bit over zealous, but I’d prefer that to being too laid back I guess. You can’t bring in any food or drink, but they will fill up a reusable water bottle of you bring one for free. Expensive for what it is, but hey, it’s kind of the only thing here. Hopeful for a good experience the rest of the summer there.

Lots of fun! Rented the birthday area. Got an unwanted visitor going through our stuff while we were sliding. Park staff not very helpful with this youth.

Children First Foster care had over 200 foster parents as our guest at the park. The staff was amazing, the facility was prepared and everyone had a great time!
