PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale’s DryTown Water Park is offering free admission to all teachers, doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, law enforcement and active military & veterans now through Friday, July 4.
This offer is not available online. Free admission will be issued at the entrance gate. A valid work ID will be required to obtain free admission.
“To all of our heroes who do so much for all of us, this is a fun way we can say ‘thank you,’” said DryTown Manager Eric Dombrowski.
“We’re hoping to see our ‘Hometown Heroes’ take advantage of this great offer,” said DryTown’s Recreation Coordinator Laura Rice. “It’s going to be hot this week, so it’s the perfect time to cool down at DryTown.”
Now in its ninth year of operation, DryTown is open daily now through Aug. 10 and weekends from Aug. 16 to September 14.
Single season passes are $84 for non-residents and discounted to $68 for Palmdale residents. Daily passes for 48” tall and over are $21 for non-residents and discounted to $16 for Palmdale residents.

“If you visit DryTown more than once, our season passes are a great value,” said Dombrowski. “Plus season pass holders get free admission to our ‘Sundown at DryTown,’ Fiesta de Aqua” and “Glow” special events.”
“Sundown at DryTown” is a popular event that takes advantage of the Antelope Valley summer evening weather, and will take place each Friday from July 11 through Aug. 8 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. “Fiesta de Aqua” will take place Saturday, July 26 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.

DryTown is a six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park, which features a 925-foot lazy river; a 35-foot waterslide tower with four waterslides and splashdown pool; a 6,000 square foot children’s water playground, including a 50-gallon vortex splash bucket, three water rings and two water cannons; and the new Dusty’s Mineshaft Racer, a 4-lane racer that launches riders headfirst into a thrilling 360 degree turn in an enclosed tube, before plunging 40 feet down open-air lanes for a downhill dash to the finish line and a serious drenching.
Season passes may be purchased online at www.cityofpalmdale.org/drytown, or at DryTown Water Park Town Hall, located at 3850-B East Avenue S.
