Inflatable Water Park


Unfortunately, due to the current lake level, the Bayside Inflatable Water Park will be closed until further notice. This is for the safety of all users. The Parks & Recreation Department is working on a plan to relocate the inflatable elements to deeper water so that they can again be used by beach visitors. We will post an update once this has been completed, or if the lake level rises enough to reopen.

During this closure, the inflatables will remain partially deflated and CLOSED signs will be hung from the elements. Please observe these signs and do not enter the inflatable water park swimming area or climb on the elements, even if lifeguards are on duty at the beach.
