Our family of 9 went to the park on Friday and found something for everyone - from plenty of lounge chairs for the non-swimmers to exciting slides for the water lovers. There was a big crowd, but we were able to find a picnic table to keep our "stuff" and some chairs close by for sun bathing. The park in not as big a some water parks in Arlington, but neither is the crowd or the mess in the parking lot.
Some items of concern and advice:
The park staff is very young (as expected), but not very friendly. They seemed to not really care how fast the lines moved or how long patrons had to wait. Just to get in there was a line of 10 people and only 1 ticket window open. The fees are pretty steep, but there seemed to be a lot of people with grocery store discount coupons. If you are from the area, you probably know about them.
Also there was a lot of hot concrete without water nearby. I would highly suggest beach shoes. Flip flops work, but they make you take them off and hold them on the slides.
I would also suggest taking your own food and drink. There is a $10 cooler charge, but it is well worth it. Bottled water is $2 and liter drinks are $3, plus the snack menu is limited to ballpark food like nachos, chips, snow cones, and burgers.
Hopefully this information will help you enjoy the park even more than we did & for less money.
