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.

My family had a blast here. My five year old was right at 48 inches tall and the lifeguards made a special effort to watch out for him on the chute rides. The Avalanche is wicked fast and all the chute rides were great. The food was yummy and all the lifeguards were so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this park.

What's not to love about this place? I've been coming here since I was ten years old. The management has been smart to upgrade and adapt over the years and keep the experience fresh and fun. Professional staff. Clean facility. Good times. A bit crowded, maybe, but worth the money.

It's a small park but loads of fun. Locals have the ability to advance purchase things at a discounted rate. Food allergy suffers, do not eat here. Dont expect good service at the snack bar, but we are season pass holders with 3 kids aged 13 to 6. We love it and go minimum of 2 days per week.

Very fun for kids and adults too, but I was overcharged and didn't know until I got home. They charged me for an extra adult! I said 2 over 48", my daughter under 48" and me free toddler. She said so 3 and the baby and gave us wristbands and never caught her mistake, which I thought was odd because she must have had an extra wrist band in her hand after we walked away. Hmmmmmmm. I thought it was kind of pricey, but didn't realize until we drove all the way home out of town. I thought of calling them to talk about it but they are having a big fire in Redding, so I decided against it. However, The kiddie area was perfect for my almost 2 year old. Good reggae music....There seemed to be a lot of rules, like no holding your toddler in the wave pool, even on the shallow edge, and no bringing in your own water. you have to dump it and refill in gift shop. Kind of a pain. But lines were relatively short and we had a really fun time.
