[CHARLESTON] – A great way to cool down during the final dog days of summer, Charleston County’s waterparks are still open through Labor Day! Starting Saturday, Aug. 13, all three area waterparks will be open for weekends only through Sept. 5. The waterparks will be open on Labor Day, Sept. 5.
Fun awaits Lowcountry residents and visitors at Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s three waterparks - Splash Zone, Splash Island and Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark! Park hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark is located in North Charleston at Wannamaker County Park. The largest waterpark in the Charleston area, Whirlin’ Waters features unique activities for all ages – from curious little ones to thrill-seeking adults. Enjoy Riptide Run, a six-lane, four story tall timed water slide that opened in 2015! The Big Kahuna wave pool is a family favorite with 27,000 square feet of wave action. Tubular Twister is guaranteed to provide a rush of excitement. Children will enjoy the Otter Bay pool area and The Big Splash Tree House featuring slides, sprays, interactive play elements and a giant bucket that dumps 1,000 gallons of water. Lily Pad Lagoon, a toddler play area, also provides hours of fun with a shallow pool and three different spray geysers. Adults can unwind while drifting down Rollin’ River, a lazy river hosting 870 feet of relaxation.
Splash Zone, located within James Island County Park, brings the Caribbean to Charleston with island-style play structures and slides. Coast down 200-foot slides, relax in the leisure pool, or float endlessly on the lazy river.
Splash Island at Mount Pleasant Palmetto Islands County Park is tucked deep within tropical vegetation and provides hours of fun and recreation for toddlers to pre-teen children. Enjoy slides, sprays, geysers, waterfalls and more.
Each waterpark also offers a full range of amenities including concessions, lockers for securing items, lounge chairs, showers and restrooms. Each park is staffed with trained lifeguards to provide a safe experience.
Then, on Sept. 10 and 11, it’s Fido’s chance to enjoy the waterpark! Dog Day Afternoon will be held at Splash Island Waterpark on Sept. 10, and at Whirlin’ Waters on Sept. 11.
