Visalia, Calif. (June 17, 2019) – Today, Visit Visalia announced that Sequoia Springs Splash Park, a 42-foot water structure with four slides, is officially open to the public.

“Water is flowing at Sequoia Springs and kids are beginning to trickle in,” said Demea Metcalf, Visit Visalia Executive Director. “Our team had the opportunity to be on site to see the doors open, and it’s an attraction we know visitors will enjoy. This is perfect timing for the summer, providing a wonderful spot for visitors to cool down and entertain the kids.”

Sequoia Springs officially opened at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 17. After an unexpected delay on Friday, Sequoia Springs began allowing select guests to enter the gates in limited numbers over the weekend.

The park is will operate normal hours for the rest of the summer—Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and special after-hours nights on select Saturdays from 7 to 10 p.m. General admission starts at $20. Package and cabana rental prices are available on the website.

The newest edition to Visalia Adventure Park, Sequoia Springs provides the only water park of its kind in the area.

“It’s an exciting day for Visalia,” Metcalf said. “Sequoia Springs Splash Park will bring a substantial number of visitors to Visalia this summer. The economic impact of the attraction will be positive for the city, further cementing our position as a leading vacation destination in Central California.”

Visalia, located in Central California with easy access from Los Angeles and San Francisco, offers numerous attractions to visitors. The entertainment destination, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, is the most robust city near Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks.

Sequoia Springs Splash Park features timed water dumps from a wooden, 900-gallon barrel, as well as interactive water cannons and spinners. It offers water three slides of various thrill levels and a smaller slide for younger kids.

Additionally, the attraction has eight cabanas to rent, as well as open seating, tables and umbrellas. A fully air conditioned, indoor lounge with views of the waterpark is available with separate entrance pricing. During operating hours, it offers beer and wine sales, as well as counter food service.  

The water zone is themed after Sequoia National Park, featuring rustic and natural elements reminiscent of the massive sequoia trees for which the area is known. The park has a commitment to sustainability and green energy. All water is treated and reused, and the attraction uses solar power.
