Head to Washtenaw County Park’s Independence Lake Park and get ready to let the kids get wet  and go wild in Whitmore Lake. The Blue Heron Bay Spray Park is a summer must for metro Detroit families. 

Blue Heron Bay Spray Park offers a summer oasis for families looking to make a splash. Center stage you’ll find the family zone tower with an orange kitty slide that is perfect for young kids and a 50 gallon dump bucket. The playset is surrounded by a water jet spider, water buckets, dragon spray rings  and sprayers. Those looking for extra adventure, can get in line for two giant waterslides that are younger-kid friendly (you must be 42 inches or taller to ride). 

There are restrooms, changing rooms, lockers and concessions. No outside food is allowed (except water and formula) and the concession food is delicious. 

Admission is $10 per vehicle for a day pass into Independence Lake County Park. Admission to the splash pad is $5 per person. Re-entry is allowed into splash pad if you chose to explore the park or the beach!

Please note: Blue Heron Bay Spray Park is will be CLOSED August 8 and 15. Due to staffing, there may be limited amenities on other days. You can call 734.449.4437 to check the park status before your arrival.
