  • A climbing forest area with multiple climbing activities for various skill levels
  • A double treehouse tower perfect for playing fort
  • The 50-foot zip line has an accessible seat.
  • A cargo net climber
  • Tunnels between towers and on the ground for smaller kids

Besides green space for running, the park contains a skate park, challenge course and a duck pond with walking trails. There are multiple picnic shelter areas and grills for cooking out. Since opening, baby swings have recently been added to the playground, making it more baby-friendly.

Tropics & Bamboo Bay – Shoreview Community Center Waterpark

The indoor waterpark has a tropical theme as well. Families will enjoy it because it has areas designed for every age and there are family dressing areas in the locker rooms.

Little Kids

Bamboo Bay is the new waterpark expansion ideal for children 10 and under and has slides, sprayers and buckets, a large play structure, zero-depth entry, and cabanas on the pool deck available for rent.

Another area great for little ones is Shipwreck Beach, a zero-depth entry play area with a shipwreck boat slide, palm tree splashpad and a water walk. The shallow pool is great for toddlers and preschoolers.

Big Kids

Tropics, the large main pool, offers bigger kids and adults space to play water sports or float on a sea creature. The three-story “Shark Attack” water slide allows participants to choose their own music as they slide down.


Parents will appreciate that this facility has a lap swim pool. There is also a whirlpool and sitting area for the adults (18 and older). However, it is pool policy that an adult must be in the water with and within arms reach of all children 6 and under. As anyone with multiple children of this age group knows, this is nearly impossible for an adult escorting more than one child, so be prepared to bring back up when taking younger siblings.
