Saturday Snapshot– Waterpark in Winter

February 11, 2012 at 12:20 pm 23 comments

We have been experiencing an odd winter so far. We usually have much more snow by now, but this winter, we get some and then it melts. The week before last, we had a light snowfall that covered all the grays and browns and so my husband and I went for a walk to the new waterpark that was opened this past summer. Here are a few pics from that place, with some of the snow brushed off.

Water squirts from holes around the inside of the arc and children run through it. It’s shut down and quiet for the winter.

My granddaughter was barely tall enough to grab hold of this critter to turn the  water on someone else.

    A water park in winter looks so cold and deserted, doesn’t it? Brrrr

      That’s true. It was pretty quiet there that day. The toboggan hill nearby gets some families.

    Your pictures made me shiver! I could feel the cold!

    • 4. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:59 pm

      I guess it would. I think cold too when I look at them. Thanks for stopping by.

    The fun is waiting.

    • 6. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 9:00 pm

      Yes, it will wait for summer to come again. Except for the toboggan hill that waits for winter.

    Snow makes everything look different!

    • 8. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:57 pm

      It does. I had to brush snow off some to see the faces.

    Winter parks do look a bit eery….

    • 10. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:56 pm

      The water parks are fun! My granddaughter enjoyed it, but was very surprised when a bucket of water dumped on her. She didn’t cry but she stayed away from the tipping buckets after that.

    Those are very cute!

    • 12. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm

      I had an idea to look at these critters that shoot water and thought, a good picture here. Thanks.

    Brrrr. The thought of a water park in the snow makes me shiver.

    We haven’t had much snow either and when it did snow yesterday it felt way colder than usual. Guess I’m just not used to it this year. How fast I forgot!

    • 14. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:54 pm

      I know. It is kind of shivery, like people doing the polar bear plunge. After I posted these photos, we got some snow this morning and the driving was… like winter as we’ve known it.

  • 15. Alyce  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    That looks like such a fun water park! I thought they looked kind of cute in the snow. 🙂

    • 16. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      I liked the critters in the snow as well. Thanks, Alyce.

  • 17. kaye  |  February 11, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Love it!

    • 18. storygal  |  February 11, 2012 at 9:59 pm

      Thanks, Kaye.
      I’ll get back to Alyce’s website and see a few more photos. Some sites would not let me comment this morning and then I had to go out.

    Those are great — I love the way summer parks feel a bit abandoned and empty in the winter.

      Now that’s a good way to describe the park in winter, except for the toboggan hill a little farther away. 😉
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  • 21. Christine Rains  |  February 12, 2012 at 2:26 am

    Those are wonderful photos. The frog looks cold!

    • 22. storygal  |  February 12, 2012 at 2:42 am

      He does look cold. Thanks for your kind words and for stopping by my blog.

  • 23. Louise  |  February 12, 2012 at 3:02 am

    It does look odd in winter. But I bet it would be fun in summer.
