Where To Slide Down A Water Slide In Greater Austin


There’s nothing that screams summer quite like swimming pools and water slides. Below you’ll find our list of 10 pools with water slides in the greater Austin area. Many slides have height restrictions, but, for smaller kids, most pool and parks with slides also have smaller slides for children who don't quite measure up. It's also good to keep in mind that if pools are short-staffed, slides might be temporarily closed, so if you have your heart set on sliding, call before you venture out.

Hawaiian Falls

Hawaiian Falls has three traditional body slides, one slide in which the floor drops beneath you and three tube slides. You can also race with friends, head first, down a slide as you ride on a foam mat. One of the tube slides can accommodate two riders at one time.
