My family and I visited Ocean Dunes Waterpark located at Upton Hill Regional Park in Arlington, VA. We didn’t have to wait in line at all. As soon as we got in, my children, ages 10 and 14, immediately noticed the two water slides and the dumping bucket with water sprayers.
It is an ocean-themed waterpark, which made it very relaxing for us. Our family spent 6 hours in the waterpark without even realizing it!
My kids loved the water slides, and spent most of their time in the splash and play pool.
We had lunch in their shack. Side note: My child has allergies and we were allowed to bring in food for my child to eat without any issues.
Ocean Dunes has something for every person, babies to adults. From the baby pool to adult lap swim, each section has its own pool. If you don’t feel like getting in the pool, there’s a section for sunbathing. If you want to escape from the sun, Ocean Dunes has sections throughout the waterpark to sit and relax in the shade.
After we left, we were able to walk just a few feet away and check out other nearby activities. You can go miniature golfing, or try your batting skills at the batting cages (softball & baseball). Throughout our walk, we also saw a pavilion and picnic tables for people to use.
Things to consider when going to Ocean Dunes:
- There are school field trips coming and going. Even with field trips, it was not packed. There was always lots of space for everyone to enjoy.
- Due to the small parking lot, it can be full at times due to other activities surrounding the water park.
- Parties can be booked at this location.
We enjoyed Ocean Dunes so much that I bought tickets for the upcoming weeks. I hope you and your family check out Ocean Dunes Waterpark!
