Outdoor Water Park Fun

Getting kids to go outside and play is usually a good idea, but in the heat of summer, the fun can be short lived. That’s why the outdoor waterparks at the Wichita YMCA are the perfect solution. Not only do the parks have fun features like waterslides and a wave pool, but they are included with your Y membership. What if your kids want to bring friends? No problem – just sign up for guest passes.

Whether you prefer the up and down action of a wave pool, or just like to float and relax in a lazy river, our outdoor water parks have something for everyone. With spray and splash grounds for the little ones and thrilling water slides for the more adventurous, your kids will enjoy hours of fun in the sun. Best of all, water park access is included with your membership.
