Water Parks in Gwinnett
- I've been to Rhodes Jordan many times... it's great! There's nowhere to actually swim, but it is still a lot of fun with the water
river and slide! The park in Buford, Bogan Park, is all indoors. There is both a large swimming pool (with diving board)
and play center (with water slide). It's a lot of fun, but the chlorine in the air does get a little overwhelming since it is inside.
- I used to work for Gwinnett County Parks and Rec who run several of the water parks in Gwinnett. I did not work at Collins Hill
specifically, but I've been there several times.
- You do not have to live in Gwinnett County to get into the aquatic centers. However, depending on what you are doing there might
be an increased fee for non-residents. For example, if you are renting space for a birthday party it is more expensive for those who
don't live in Gwinnett. At least that's what it was like while I was working there.
- Each of the aquatic centers have different features. Most have a large slide or two. There will be shallow areas for the non-swimming
kids and a few play structures geared to those non-swimmers. The water park aspects of Collins Hill are outdoor. Some of the other centers
have their water park structures indoors.
- I don't know about the others, but I have been to Collins Hill several times and Brentley and my nieces love it. Great price too.
Very clean and you can see the kids really well from all angles. There's actually a new one that has just opened in Gainesville. My step-mom
showed me the flyer and now I can't remember the name. I'll be checking it out as soon as school's out though.
- My kids have always loved the water park off collins hill and I believe their is one in Dacula as well. We actually live right off collins
hill. You don't have to live in gwinnett county to use it. Their is a per time charge or you can buy a yearly pass but if you don't live nearby
I suggest paying each time you go.
- My kids and I enjoy Collins Hill. They have two indoor heated pools, and an outside aquatic center with a playscape and water cannons, a lazy river area
and two water slides. Definitely worth the $6 it cost us adults to get in and kids were $3 at the time -- dunno what rates are like now.
- I used to live down the street from the Collins Hill pool. It was a fantastic facility, with both an indoor pool for laps and an outside "water park"
for want of a better word. There was a small fee per person and I used to take my kids there a lot. The lockers are huge with plenty of lockers,
toilets and showers. I kind of miss it. Gwinnett county had great pools!
