Are your kids tired of swimming in the backyard pool and looking for more of an adventure? If so, then check out the largest floating Aqua Park located right here in Sacramento! Wake Island Aqua Park brings fun and excitement to our 100 degree days! Located at 7633 Locust Rd, in Pleasant Grove (approximately 15 minutes from Downtown Sacramento) this water park will give kids and families of all ages the thrill of their summer.
Try your luck on the floating obstacle courses, have some fun jumping around on the huge floating playground, or just relax on the sandy beach, This place has it all!
My kids and I visited Wake Island with a group of friends to go paddle boarding and I was amazed at all the choices they had available for renting:
Cable (boatless) wakeboards, stand up paddleboards, pedal boats, floating obstacle course, floating “hamster wheels,” power paddlers, swimming beach and more!
Entry into Wake Island is free, you just pay for the rentals you would like to use. My kids did the Stand up Paddle boards for $20 an hour. If you haven’t tried paddle boarding yet, you really should – its great fun and can be a good workout! We enjoyed an hour of paddle boarding, raced on the pedal boats, had lunch at the Beach Hut Deli (on site) and spent some time hanging out on the beach relaxing… it was a great summer afternoon!
So if you are looking for something fun and adventurous to do with your family, check out Wake Island Aqua Park. They also offer summer camps, wakeboard lessons and it’s a great venue for a summer birthday party.
Make sure you pack your beach towels and plenty of sunscreen for this fun day out!
