Water World, Colorado’s first and largest waterpark, has been voted the #2 outdoor water park in the country through Newsweek’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

Water World opened in 1979 and is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. Operated by the Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District, Water World is publicly owned, and proceeds go towards providing parks, facilities, and recreation services in the surrounding community.

“We are incredibly proud of our history in Colorado and in the community,” said Yvonne Fischbach, Executive Director of Hyland Hills, “It has been an honor to help so many families make unforgettable memories, and we are grateful to be recognized on the national level.”
