Wild Waterworks

One more favourite family destination won’t be opening for the summer 2020 season.

In what I sure wasn’t an easy decision, Wild Waterworks announced today on their Facebook page and on their website that it will not be opening for the 2020 summer season. Noting the enormous expense of up to $2.6 million dollars in safety measures that would need to be taken to ensure physical distancing for visitors, it’s a smarter financial decision that the park stays closed for this season and work on preventative maintenance and capital upgrades while the park is closed.

“This was a difficult recommendation to make,” Burnside said. “I believe this is the first time in our operational history.”


Over 150 summer employees who are needed to open and maintain the park were not hired, and the 6 weeks it takes to get the waterpark ready for opening day are already ticking away. It’s not a surprise but it definitely disappointing to see one of our family’s favourite destinations closed this summer.
