Children in Prince William County will have another place to cool off this summer.
Waterworks Waterpark in Dale City is opening its redesigned children’s play area at 11 a.m. on May 26.
A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for 11:30 a.m., according to a release.
The 6,600-square-foot play area offers 13 spray features, two slides and a large dumping bucket.
“With more than 400 gallons of water rushing through our new spray-ground and play structure every minute, kids will literally have a blast this summer,” Waterpark Manager Mike Young said in a release.
The water used in the play area is filtered and recirculated.
Updates have also been made to other parts of the water park, including the main pool, which received a new spray feature.
The offices of Supervisor John Jenkins and Chairman Corey Stewart helped fund the renovation projects, which cost $2.5 million.
Jenkins’ office contributed about $71,600 and Stewart’s office provided about $15,600.
The park, located at Andrew Leitch Park, will only be operating on weekends from May 26 through June 11.
Between June 11 and August 26, Waterworks Waterpark will be open every day.
The park will close for the season after Labor Day weekend.
It costs $7.75 for park visitors who are 48” or taller, and $6.50 for those who are under 48” tall.
Admission is $6.50 for seniors, and children who are 2 years old or younger can enter the park for free.
