Nothing signifies summer in Jonesborough more than Wetlands Water Park. Celebrate the beginning of summer with tickets reduced to just $3 per person and children 3 and under are free on Thursday, June 1st. Located at 1523 Persimmon Ridge Park in Jonesborough, Wetlands is in its second decade of providing great, safe, outdoor family fun.
Park goers can plan to spend an entire day at Wetlands, enjoying three flume water slides, two family otter slides and a lazy river. Along with the slides and the pool, there is a zero depth pool, which allows access to people of all ages, particularly the little ones, who can enjoy additional features such as water bubblers, spray features, dump buckets and a rain tree. Swimming builds up an appetite and Wetlands boasts a full-service café. There is also a beach volleyball court, picnic tables and a massive sun deck.
Matt Townsend, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation, mentioned some other surprises in store for Wetlands this year. “This year, we have added some great special events. These will be held after hours and will be announced on our social media. We have some very exciting stuff coming up. Stay tuned.”
Wetlands also hosts private parties for companies and organizations. The water park is also the perfect venue for hosting summertime birthday parties, with group discounts for parties of ten or more guests.
The water park also offers swimming lessons throughout the season for $60. This provides students of all ages a great opportunity to take advantage of the physical fitness benefits of swimming, which has been proven to be a healthy, all around activity.
Wetlands provides a way to make swimming a part of the community’s regular routine this year by offering affordable rates on daily passes and an even better bargain with their season passes.
