Mountain House Water Park




PARK REVIEW

The Mountain House Water Park is so cool!!!! It makes me wish I lived in the East Bay. Mountain House is hot though, so the water feature is much needed on a summer day. At this playground, there is a large water feature area, a toddler playground, and an older kids playground. This park has a basketball court, tennis courts, baseball diamond, and a horseshoe pit.


ADDRESS
 -- Mountain House, CA along Central Parkway

WATER FEATURE AREA

 
  • Doesn't that picture look like tons of fun?!?!?  The water feature is a large, circular open area.  Palm trees surround the area.  It's a beautiful oasis.  Water shoots up from the ground at different levels.  Big kids & babies will have a blast here.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PICNIC AREA

There are plenty of areas to picnic.  There are 6 tables at the playground.  Tables line the path as well.  There is also a large field.  There is little shade because the trees are so young.  


WALKING PATHS

The area is beautifully landscaped, and there are a lot of new trees.  It's a very nice place for a walk.   


MAINTENANCE

This was a really clean park. 


RESTROOMS

The interior of the bathrooms is really nice.  However, they weren't very clean when I visited. 


WATER FOUNTAINS

There are water fountains located on a pole next to the playground.
