I grew up going to these slides. My parents used to bring us downtown to slide on wax paper and we had a blast. What a great time! Fun for adults, too :)

In existence for over 20 years, this unique metro water mall park is a great quiet place to visit. Go for a great walk in a nice place. Unique in a metro area!

I have been here several times. I really don't care for the place. It is quite dirty and not very well taken care of.

I believe that the deepest point is 12 feet, but the river walk itself is much shallower than that. The current is basically nonexistent and I have never heard of any problems or accidents in all of the years that it has... More
