Summer is here and we are planning on enjoying every moment we can. One of our favorite places to play in the water is Red Oaks Waterpark in Madison Heights. With a wide variety of activities it is a great place to cool off and relax for the day.
I remember the grand opening weekend for Red Oaks Waterpark. Our high school band played music for the ceremony, then we all got a ticket for a free admission. I am pretty sure I went back that day to enjoy the park. It has always been one of my favorite summer destinations.
2021 Red Oaks Waterpark Information
💦💦💦 GREAT NEWS 💦💦💦
Red Oaks Waterpark is scheduled to reopen 6/23/2021 featuring a NEW Children’s SPLASH PAD!!!
The new Splash Pad features 52 interactive water features, including a water play climber with slides and a dumping bucket. The zero-depth attraction offers 160 ’x 105’ of play area with a new adjacent shade structure. Additionally, a family restroom has been added adjacent to the splash pad.
Also new this year, tickets will be available for purchase at OaklandCountyParks.com. Entry to Red Oaks Waterpark will be $17/person/online; $20/person on site.
Red Oaks will be open June 23-27 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. daily. The waterpark will be closed June 28-29. From June 30-late August, the waterpark will be open 11 a.m.-6 p.m., seven days a week.
They offer a zero depth wave pool, triple flume slides, a lazy river and a great area for younger children. Rosa and I spent the most of our day in the Soak Station. This area offers many slides, spraying water, levers to pull, wheels to turn and a lot more. The water reaches a maximum depth of 18 inches, so Rosa wore her life jacket while playing in this section. They also offer a small spray pad which is great for smaller children.
The entrance has been moved from it’s previous location which allows for quicker entry and better parking. They have also added a lot more picnic tables and pavilions. There are usually plenty of chairs unless you go on a super busy day. The overall cleanliness of the park is acceptable.
The waterpark offers locker rentals, decent concessions, showers, dryers, life jackets (for younger guests) and plenty of picnic tables (arrive early to get one).
We always have a ton of fun enjoying the warm water fun at Red Oaks Waterpark. We hope you do too!!!
