In 1994, the Prince William County Park Authority evaluated the possibility of developing a Waterpark at their existing Ben Lomond Park. The existing park had a 50-meter outdoor pool, a contracted bumper boat and “hydrotube” slide attraction and a bathhouse; soccer and softball fields, racquetball courts and several pavilion areas. A planning team, comprised of internal recreation and park professionals was created and given a directive - develop a 13 acre Waterpark on the site of the existing 50-meter pool.
I work here but here is an unbiased review, staff is helpful and kind, a nice array of slides and pools, and some pretty decent food. The one thing people struggle with is location, and yes it is located in the back of a suburb community so do not stress if you think you're going the wrong way.
Took an 8 and 13 year old boys. We were there for about an hour and a half when we left. We had a nice time, it's just not very big. The price is ok for what you get. Probably better suited to much younger kids.
Nice Water park not to crowded, great price and helpful staff.
We only were in the kiddie area, but it suited our 2 year grandson's interest just fine. It had 3 small waterslides, a small rope climbing part, and little fountains. It was easy to watch him here and he never got into any questionable situations. Park was clean. We will go back again. Appreciated the reduced rate at 3 p.m.
Pretty good water park kinda small fun and has decent food
