Our award-winning waterparks are summer's must-see destination! Choose Red Oaks Waterpark in Madison Heights or Waterford Oaks Waterpark near Pontiac, for a splashing good time with family and friends! Both waterparks feature wave-action pools, giant waterslides and plenty of picnic space, as well as locker rooms and food concessions. Both waterparks are smoke & alcohol-free. Glass containers are not allowed.

Red Oaks Waterpark

Kids enjoy the 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. Or the Spray & Play, water play area for toddlers, with 15 water jets and bubblers at zero depth.
Grab a tube and float on the River Ride, a 990-foot long moving river. Other water park features include:

• Triple Turn, a triple-flume waterslide
• Terrific Tides wave-action pool. The pool is heated, so even when it's cloudy or windy, the water's just fine.

Waterford Oaks Waterpark

Tropical Wave Pool includes palm trees and near the "shore."

The Big Bucket children's water playground features more than 30 interactive activities including a giant tipping bucket, waterfalls and sprays. Participants must be 56" or shorter and accompanied by an adult.

Ragin' Rapids, a group raft ride starts at a height of three stories; carries riders 515 feet through drops and turns; and ends in a three-foot deep splash-down pool.

After entertaining guests for 28 years, Slidewinder, the dual flume waterslide at Waterford Oaks Waterpark, reached the end of its life cycle and was removed in 2011. Oakland County Parks and Recreation staff is evaluating options for a future new attraction that is entertaining for visitors and cost effective for the parks system.
