Cobb County’s newest water park has four unique areas. The activity pool is 4 feet deep and has an in-water seating area and two basketball backboards. The spray-play area has many spray and fountain features. Behind the activity pool are two water slides. They exit into a 3.5 foot splash area that is connected to a leisure river of the same depth. There are pavilions available to rent as well as chairs and picnic tables on the deck. There is also a concession stand for food and refreshments. This Cobb County-owned facility is a thrifty alternative to White Water.

Cost: Children: $3.50;  Adults: $4.50;  and Seniors (60 and older):  $2.12 Cobb Aquatic center membership passes are accepted at the water park.

Time: Monday-Thursday: 1-7:30pm. Friday-Sunday: 1-6pm.
