PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale’s DryTown Water Park is offering free admission to all teachers, doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, law enforcement, active military and veterans now through Sunday, July 3, as part of “Hometown Heroes” week.
“With the hot weather we’ve been having, there’s no better way we can say ‘thank you’ to our heroes than with a free pass to DryTown,” stated Dry Town Manager Eric Dombrowski.
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.
DryTown is open daily through Aug. 7.
From Aug. 13 to Sept. 11 the park will be open weekends. Season passes and day use tickets are available at www.drytownwaterpark.com. This summer will also feature seven “Sundown at DryTown” events on consecutive Fridays, from June 24 through Aug. 5, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Season pass holders are admitted free.
DryTown will also host “Teacher Appreciation Month” in September, and all teachers will receive free admission. More events will be announced throughout the season.
DryTown is a six-acre Old West mining town-themed aquatic park, featuring a 925-foot lazy river; a 35-foot waterslide tower with three 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.
