My kids enjoyed this place. It's more of a big pool than a water park. But they had fun. There is an area where they can play in the sand and the water in the pool is not too deep. They sell food onsite but...More

Northern Virginia Parks Department has a number of great water parks that are perfect for beating the summer heat for a reasonable price (though some are free). Pirate's Cove Water Park is tucked inside Pohick Bay Park in Lorton, Virginia. Non-residents will pay a parking...More

There are limited options for water parks in the area, so this is a pretty good option. Don't expect quality service at the snack bar. The teens running this place have no clue what's going on.

I attended this park with my husband and two children, ages four and one. It was a very nice water park. They had life vests available for the children, which I thought was necessary in the main part of the pool because it's about 2...More

This is a great park for kids. They have areas for toddlers (kiddie pool and sand play area), elementary age (fountains and slides in the 3.5' pool area and big slides for those over 42"), and teenagers (the big slides and deeper pool area). They...More

I guess for kids, this place is great. For the adults attempting to find seating in the shade, or anywhere for that matter, it's a pain. Seems like it is always packed. Area for eating is very small. The lines for the slide are long,...More

Fun and affordable, which is hard to come by in this area! My son and nephews didn't want to leave! They even had the baby/toddler pools heated for my baby niece & nephew... it was an eventful day for our family....
