Wondering what events and programs are on tap for the next few weeks as we begin to enjoy cooler weather? Wonder no more. Here's a full page of activities and events
that will keep you bustling into the change of seasons.
Strawberry Water Park will open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 5. It will be open every weekend (Saturday & Sunday) in September and into October, as weather permits. (Note: it will also be open on Monday, Sept. 7 for Labor Day.) The hours of operation are 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Admission prices are as follows:
- $10 for Pasadena residents (over 48 inches tall)
- $12 for non-residents (over 48 inches tall)
- $6 for Pasadena residents (under 48 inches tall)
- $8 for non-residents (under 48 inches tall)
- Under 48 inches are not able to use water slides.
Note: Because AT&T is still in the process of running cables/wires to the facility, transaction speeds are much slower than normal, so guests are encouraged to bring cash for admission and concession purchases, in order to keep wait times to a minimum.
The water park's capacity is 600 people inside the gates. After that many people have been admitted into the water park, a waiting line will be formed. To see photos of this newest of Pasadena attractions, click here
