Splash Into Fun This Summer – Outdoor Pools & Splash Pads in Davis

by discoverdavis

School is out and temperatures are rising, which means it’s time to take a trip (or two) to the pool. Cool off from the summer heat and take your family on a fun adventure at one of many outdoor pools and water parks in Davis.


Connected to Lagoon Amusement Park, Lagoon-A-Beach is a family favorite for cooling off in the summertime. Beat the heat in the Beach’s six acres of surging slides, twisting hydro tubes, crystal waterfalls, bubbling fountains and summer swimming. Take a ride through the rapids, float the lazy river, or soak up the sun at this classic Davis waterpark.

Give your family an all-day adventure at Lagoon! One day ticket to Lagoon gives you access to all park rides, Lagoon-A-Beach, and Pioneer Village. Spend the morning hitting all the favorite Lagoon rides like Cannibal and Wicked, then take a stroll through Pioneer Village to settle down from all that adrenaline. Then beat the afternoon heat by splashing at Lagoon-A-Beach. Lagoon makes for a perfect summertime family adventure!

Lagoon-A-Beach Summer Hours: Daily from 12 pm – 7 pm.

Don’t want to get completely submerged or not bathing suit ready? Check out some of Lagoon’s best water rides if you simply want to cool off without having to put your bathing suit on!

The Log Flume

The Log Flume is a fun four-person open log ride that takes you along a nice float through some trees and then hoists you up to a steep, water-y drop. If you want a heftier soak, we suggest loading heavier people in the front!

Rattlesnake Rapids

Rattlesnake Rapids is as close as we get to whitewater rafting in Davis. You’ll get fairly soaked on this ride, especially the unfortunate soul who gets hit by the waterfall near the end!

Cherry Hill

Cherry Hill has been providing outdoor family fun in Davis for over 50 years! What once was a cherry farm has adapted and evolved into a full-scale water park complete water slides, foam-padded river run, lazy river, water playground, 2 pools, mini-golf, and a campsite. Other activities include:

  • 6000 sq.ft. Jungle Maze
  • Jungle Boats
  • Mini Golf

You and your family can spend the day splashing around and soaking up the sun at Cherry Hill.

Lunch at Cherry Hill will be easy, convenient, and fast, meaning you and your family can get back to playing!
