PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale’s DryTown Water Park will celebrate its 10th year of operations when it opens for the 2015 season at 11 a.m. this Saturday, May 23.
“It’s hard to believe that it’s been decade now that DryTown’s been open,” said DryTown Manager Eric Dombrowski. “They say time flies when you’re having fun, and there’s no better place for fun in the summer than at DryTown!”
As part of the opening celebration weekend, the City of Palmdale will unveil the winning entry in its third annual “Walk on Words” Poetry Contest. Selected from more than 50 entries on the topic of summer fun, the winning poem will be stamped in concrete at the water park and the winner will take home a family 4-pack of DryTown season passes.
“Our season passes are the way to go because they’re such a great value,” Dombrowski said. “With a season pass, you have unlimited use of DryTown, free admission to the popular ‘Sundown at DryTown’ events held Friday evenings during the summer and free admission to our special themed events.”
Customers who purchase a season pass between now and Friday, May 22, will also receive a free single day admission.
DryTown will be open Saturday, May 23, through Monday, May 25, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will also be open Wednesday, May 28, and daily beginning May 30 through Aug. 9. From Aug. 15 to Sept. 13 the park will be open weekends.
Season passes and day use tickets are available at www.cityofpalmdale.org/drytown.
The six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park 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 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.
