Outdoor Water Park
The Outdoor Water Park is open for the 2021 season.
This year, season pass holders and KAC members will have early access to the park 30 minutes before regular opening (except Sundays). YMCA members will enter with the general public when the park opens.
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Inclement Weather Policy: In the event of severe rain, lightning and/or thunder, the Outdoor Water Park will close for the duration of the inclement weather. Guests may continue to swim in the indoor pools unless conditions require that it closes too. No refunds will be issued in the event that the Outdoor Water Park closes. In the event that all pools close for the remainder of the day or indoor pools are not an option (swim meet, etc.), a rain check may be issued if the KAC closes before 2 p.m. or if the patron has been at the water park for less than two hours (must have receipt).
