Waterworks Water Park Woodbridge 2013 Swim Year

Waterworks in Dale City is a ton of fun in the summer! My kids are always excited to go pass their swim test (they're too short to technically ride the slides, but a few years of swimming lessons means they can get a bracelet anyway) so they can do this:
Ahhh, the "fast slide".

Waterworks, located at 5301 Dale Boulevard, Dale City VA 22193 has beach entry, two slides, three "jungle walks", shade pavilions, children's pool, concessions stand, and lockers.  Our family always has a lot of fun when we go, and the kids really do look forward to it every year.

If you have children under 5, be sure to mark your calendar for Wednesdays from 9-10:30am for the Parent/Tot playdate.  Kids are $3.50 and an adult is free with paying child! Play in the children's area before the day gets too hot, and before the rest of the park is open!

Everyone can mark their calendar for Fabulous Fridays, June 21st, June 28th, July 5th, and July 19th.  These days, the park stays open from 4-9pm with special programs, giveaways, food deals, and games starting at 5pm.

Also available are birthday parties, pavilion rentals for groups or family gatherings, or you can even rent the entire park! (Our church does this in Fairfax for baptism services. It's not exactly the Jordan River, but we sure do have a good time.)

Also available are after-work  swim lessons! This year the schedule is:

Session 1: June 19-June 27 (6 classes)
Session 2: July 1-July 11 (7 classes, no class on July 4)
Session 3: July 15-July 25 (8 Classes, M-Th, Tu-Fri)
Session 4: July 29-August 9 (8 Classes)

Levels available are:
Preschool 1 (6:45pm or 7:20pm)
Preschool 2/3 (6:45pm)
Level 1/2 (7:20pm or 8:05pm)
Level 3 (8:05pm)

$66 for 8 classes, $61 for 7 classes, $56 for 6 classes. and private swim is available by request.  These spaces fill up QUICKLY, and you can register at any county rec center.  If you have additional info questions, call the aquatics manager, Kat Fish, at 703-680-7137.
