Ontarians will have a new way to cool down this summer with the opening of a brand new wave pool this weekend.
Located in East Park, an activity playground in London, Ont., the wave pool is the largest of its kind in southwestern Ontario. The $2.5 million project began construction back in October 2017 and is finally ready to open for business this Saturday.
"It's very refreshing, very inviting. It's blue, the water is crystal clear. It's a beautiful 79 F. There's blue lounge chairs, which everyone coming in has been saying 'My goodness it looks like a resort out here,'" said Alon Shatil, East Park's general manager.
The wave pool will be the newest addition to East Park's lineup of attractions, which currently include a golf course, mini-putt, batting cages, go-karts, rock climbing and more. There are also other pools on site and a total of 7 water slides, including the famous 55' high bullet slide.
Admission prices to the park for this summer are as follows:
Those looking for a more private affair can even rent out the entire waterpark. See here for prices.
