MADISON HEIGHTS (WWJ) – Sticking around home for Memorial Day? The long weekend just got cooler. Consider a trip to Red Oaks Waterpark in Madison Heights, which opens May 28.

To make the family fun more affordable, Oakland County Parks and Recreation is offering half-off admission prices through Memorial Day weekend.

Admission includes all-day access to the triple-flume water slide, the wave pool and the River Ride, a 990-foot long moving lazy river. Click for park map.

Kids can enjoy the Soak Station, the children’s water playground with 68 features, including water jets, slides, bubbler jets and a six-foot tipping bucket.

The little ones will love the Spray & Play, a water play area for toddlers, with 15 water jets and bubblers at zero depth.

Bring food for a lunch because the water park also has a picnic area, complete with tables and grills.

Regular rates are: $16 for those over 43″ tall, $9 seniors and those under 43″ tall, or $12 for residents over 43″ tall. But remember, those rates are cut in half for the holiday weekend. Parking is free.

The waterpark is open 10 am to 7 pm, weather permitting. Click here for the forecast.

Red Oaks Waterpark is located at 1455 East 13 Mile Road in Madison Heights. For more information, visit destinationoakland.com.
