Best Water Park and Water Play Areas in the GTA
Head to one of these water parks in the GTA to cool off this summer. These water park and water play areas have everything kids and teens love: tube and multi slides, lazy rivers, and splash parks with mini slides and spray areas for younger children. Some parks offer large water playscapes and structures as well, and many offer swimming pools. This year we are also seeing pop-up parks being set-up on lakes with fun inflatable obstacle courses and slides.
Many locations still have Covid safety restrictions in place. Expect limited capacities, and timed ticketing. Always check ahead before heading out.
