Water Park Opens Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of the outdoor pool season, and Gaithersburg’s Water Park at Summit Hall Farm in Bohrer Park will be ready for visitors of all ages. Located next to the Skate Park, Miniature Golf Course, and Activity Center at 506 South Frederick Road, the Water Park offers a relaxing and fun-filled experience for the entire family. Opening day is Saturday, May 27 at noon.
The Water Park’s main pool is primarily for recreational swimming and provides ample shallow water play spaces and a “raindrop” water umbrella for children to enjoy. The main attraction, though, is the double-flume slide, which dispatches swimmers from an elevated tower to a separate splashdown section of the main pool. The enclosed tube slide, which is 185 feet long, offers an exhilarating ride to the bottom, while the open flume slide is designed for a more leisurely journey of 336 feet. The slides are open to all swimmers 48 inches and taller. The Water Park also boasts a separate tot pool with a frog slide, as well as fountains and sprays to entertain the little ones.
Adjacent to the main pool is a carpeted sun deck with plenty of deck chairs and lounges on hand. In the large grassy area, which surrounds the pool, there are several covered picnic tables available. Additionally, there is a shaded Snack Bar Plaza on the premises where Boardwalk Fries provides a scrumptious menu to Water Park attendees.
The Water Park operates on a pre-season schedule while school is in session. The full summer season begins June 14 when the pool opens daily at 11 a.m. and closes at 7 p.m. (7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays).
