The summer heat drew a crowd at Aquaport as adults, teens, and children cooled off in the park's various facilities.
People seemed to have the same idea as crowds gathered at Aquaport over Memorial Day Weekend. Because of the hot weather, the park had a large turn-out for its opening day of the season. With numerous pools and slides, and tasty cold treats, the park is the perfect way to kick off the summer. Aquaport's 750-foot lazy river and the pink rapid tube slide remain a popular attraction for visitors. For non-residents, admission to the park is $15 for adults and $10 for children. For residents who have a current resident discount card, admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children.
