Recently my family and friends went to Westlake Willy's water park with much anticipation. Unfortunately our time there from a parents and kids perspective was incredibly disappointing! Upon arrival, the parking and small shore area was clean and tidy. Our children (ages, 7, 8, & 10) were keen to get out and begin their adventures. The inflatables initially presented as fun and safe, however upon using them (water tooters, iceberg, trampoline) many of the handles were broken and unusable. Not only was this frustrating for children attempting to use, it was incredibly unsafe! The water in the lake was low (due to our recent dry weather) and it didn't appear that any of the inflatables had been moved out accordingly. Therefore as children jumped off or slid down into the water it was very shallow, too shallow. My son slide off the designated side of the iceberg and bottomed out! My husband and I were both in and out of the water supervising our children, the lake floor soft and sandy, periodically we would walk into unmarked cinder-block anchors! For a time, I sat on the shore at a picnic table over looking the park. Several of the sun umbrellas were broken as well as numerous plastic Muskoka chairs. Camping chairs were set up and looked like they had never been taken in. We came to this water park anticipating a fun filled afternoon only to leave after an hour! This park looks good from afar but is far from good! This park is an accident waiting to happen. I would not recommend this park to anyone!
