About the Harrison Water Park

The Harrison Water Park is an impressive collection of inflatable rafts, slides, swings, trampolines and apparatus you can climb on and jump off. There are giant floating balls you can climb, a massive inflatable teeter-totter, and a blob you can jump on and make your friends fly off.

Users of the Harrison Water Park need to wear life jackets, which is nice because they help keep you warm. There is also lifeguard supervision at the facility.

Participants must be at least 6 years old, and children between 6 and 10 years of age require supervision by a responsible adult or family member age 16+. The water park is not suitable for children ages 5 and under.

If you like swimming, playground apparatus and playing in the water, you’ll love the Harrison Water Park.

Hours & Admission

Admission to the water park costs about $39.99 per person (regardless of age).

TIP: For some people two hours is more than sufficient time. For others though, all day isn’t enough. The stronger, younger, more fit, the more you like playing in the water, the sunnier the day, the warmer the weather, and the more friends you’re playing with, the longer you’ll likely want to stay.

The Harrison Water Park is open daily from late June until the Labour Day Weekend in September between 11:00 am and 6:00 pm. The 2023 opening date was June 24th and the park is open until September 4th.

Tips & Advice

Below are more tips and suggestions to help you make the most of your experience at the Harrison Water Park.

TIP #1: Go on a hot sunny day.

TIP #2: Rent a wet suit. They only cost $5 or so and it’s worth it. The water is cold, even in July and August, and you’ll likely find the sliding more comfortable if you’re wearing one.

TIP #3: There is a wide selection of contraptions to play on, so there’s something for everyone. Some of the structures, however, do require upper-body strength to get up on, including the teeter-totter and floating ball structures. Warn young children in advance that they might not be able to do everything, especially if not accompanied by a strong adult.

TIP #4: Playing at the Harrison Water Park is great exercise. All that climbing and hauling yourself up on things is guaranteed to burn calories and give participants a thorough upper-body workout.

TIP #5: Don’t forget your sunscreen, especially on warm sunny days. If it’s really hot and you plan to stay all day, a sun hat might also be a good idea, so long as it floats!

TIP #6: There are coin-operated lockers on the dock. They cost about a Toonie and are single use (meaning you have to spend $2 each time you open one and then re-lock it).

TIP #7: The water park has a no refund policy under any circumstances. If it looks like a thunder or wind storm is on its way, be warned that parts of the facility or the entire place may close either temporarily or early for the remainder of the day.

TIP #8: Go with a group of friends – the more the merrier!
