With temperatures rising as summer arrives in full force, it’s time to cool off with some water fun. The Ardmore Community Water Park is the perfect local spot to make a splash and go for a swim. It’s been part of the community for more than 50 years and now has many attractions that you would expect from a major water park.
Hours, Admission, and Location
The Ardmore Community Water Park is open every single day during the summer months, so you can go nearly whenever you want. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, it opens at 12:30 p.m. and closes at 6 p.m. On Tuesday nights, it stays open later, until 7 p.m. However, on Sundays, the water park is open from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. You can find the water park at 506 3rd NE.
Children 2 years old and younger get in for free. Daily admission is $4 for those between 3 and 11 and $5 for those who are 12 and up. You can also get an individual season pass for $80 or $100, depending on the age, or a family season pass for $250 that includes a family of five in the same residence.
Activities to Do
In addition to the option to just float around in the water and cool off, there are plenty of activities built into the water park. After all, it’s a water park, not just a pool. You’ll find water basketball and fun slides with plenty of twists. Your little ones will appreciate the zero-depth entry pool, and so will you, as it gives you peace of mind for youngsters just learning to swim. That area even has a fun toddler frog slide and plenty of spray features. So, toddlers can enjoy the water without having to worry about swimming. Advanced swimmers can practice their skills on the diving board or show off their adventurous side with the drop slide. There’s also a fun current channel, a mushroom fountain, and bucket drops.

This way, you can safely store your belongings while you go for a swim without having to worry about your phone getting wet. There’s also a concession stand complete with picnic tables. There’s no need to bring snacks with you, even if you plan on spending the full day at the water park.
