An inflatable island with more than two dozen features and obstacles opens this weekend at Milton’s Kelso Conservation Area.

The Kelso Cove Waterpark will have 26 different features and obstacles to climb, bounce, jump, and slide on and allow more than 100 guests to play at any given time.

“It’s great, one of the best water parks I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to many of them,” said one guest who got a chance at a sneak preview earlier this week.

Guests who are at least 5-years-old and over 4-feet tall can participate after passing a swimming twist wearing an approved lifejacket and receiving a safety briefing. Once inside, lifejackets and appropriate swimwear need to be worn and guests must be barefoot while they navigate their way through the waterpark.

The floating island will be supervised by lifeguards.

“At our parks, we’re always looking for new opportunities to get people active outdoors and Kelso Cove Waterpark promises to do just that,” said Craig Machan, director, Parks & Operations at Conservation Halton.

Starting Saturday, June 29, the waterpark will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with timeslots throughout the day to book, the last being at 5 p.m. It is recommended to pre-book your visit online in advance.

The attraction joins a list of other activities available at the Conservation Halton park. Visitors can plan a full day of fun at the park including boat rentals, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, disc golf, picnicking, challenge course (including aerial ropes, climbing tower and archery), and more.
