My kids got a waterpark pass last year for a reading program at their school. It was our first time visiting the waterpark and they had an awesome time! If it had not been the end of the season, we would have gone back again. But, these outings add up, especially when you have 2 or 3 kids, or even more.
I was happy to see that Oakland County Parks is taking into consideration that some families are struggling right now. They are offering lower rates for the upcoming summer season to make family fun more affordable.
“The waterparks are really fun for all ages,” Katie Stavale, parks supervisor, said. “Both waterparks have a high energy atmosphere that makes for an ideal summer outing.”
