Everyone into the water! Antioch Water Park celebrates 20 years

Everyone Into the Water

By Allen Payton

This summer, you can have fun while and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Antioch Water Park and conserve water, at the same time, during the drought.

How? By playing in the water at the park, instead of the sprinklers, at home.

The city-owned facility opened in 1995 and was paid for with taxpayer funds through the Mello-Roos assessment district. So, we own it and it’s run by the city’s Parks & Recreation Department.

In fact, the City of Antioch has gone further in its water conservation measures at the park, by upgrading the chemical and filtration system, saving 100’s of gallons and money, each month.

The water park’s season began on May 23 and runs through Monday, September 7 and it is now open seven days a week.

They employ 150 people, mostly teenagers, each summer, and about 70 of the employees are new for this season, according to Antioch Parks & Recreation Department Director Nancy Kaiser.

For almost all of them, it’s their first job,” she added.

The water park also offers a seven-week Junior Lifeguard Camp for kids ages 11-15, as well as Coyote Hills Summer Day Camp from June 15 to July 31.

You can create a recreation account on-line and do business with the water park and the rest of the Parks & Recreation department
