Lion’s Junction Family Water Park

Temple, TX

Lion's Park - Temple, TXAs the culmination of one of the largest projects on the 2007 Temple Parks Bond, Lion’s Junction Family Water Park is the newest recreation facility being enjoyed by the community.

A true credit to the success of their efforts in bringing facilities such as this to life, Temple Parks & Leisure Services has been selected as a finalist for the 2009 Gold Medal Award from the National Recreation and Parks Association.

The 9,400 sq. ft. Lion’s Junction Family Water Park includes a pair of three-story waterslides: one enclosed and one open flume.

The slide plunge pool is elevated above the main body of water and spills over with a dramatic waterfall effect.

The Lions Junction Express play area offers all the fun of a playground with the extra splash of a spray pad and a railroad themed water feature. The beach entry pool allows visitors to walk into the water on a gradual slope, and carries the railroad theme throughout its many features. With a custom themed children’s slide built especially for toddlers, this area of the pool is ideal for parents with small children.

Venturing into deeper water, the 200 ft. long lazy river carries swimmers along its winding path decorated with railroad themed spray features, and an almost silent vortex beckons guests to enter its swirling waters and enjoy its hydro effects.
