Red Oaks Waterpark

Terrific Tides wave-action pool

Triple Turn, a triple-flume waterslide

Soak Station, children's water playground with 68 features, including water jets, curtains and slides, plus bubbler jets and a six-foot tipping bucket; must be 56" or shorter and be accompanied by an adult

Spray & Play, a water play area for toddlers, with 15 water jets and bubblers at zero depth. These are heated pools.

Grab a tube and float on the River Ride, a 990-foot long moving river. 

The wave pool, river ride, and children's water playground (Soak Station and Big Bucket) are heated, so even when it's cloudy or windy, the water's just fine!

Red Oaks Waterpark is certified by the Michigan Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program. MTESP certification requires the park to exceed requirements of environmental laws, protect water resources and enhance the maintenance of turfgrass and open spaces. See other ways OCP is protecting the environment.

Check out all of the fun!
