Aquatore Park in Blaine has family friendly amenities that include a playground with a tot lot, paved trails and space for picnics with a grill. There are also sports fields and courts, and in the winter months a hockey rink. This park offers off-street parking and seasonal restrooms. The mature trees in this park offer plenty of shade in the open play areas.
Family Activities at Aquatore Park
Families can find events and activities at BlaineEvents.com. I've found it is best to know your activity number because the search function in the activities registration is unreliable. Aquatore and Town Square Park split Blaine's summer Performance in the Park series between them. Most of the kid bands play at Aquatore for day-time concerts.
Blaine Festival at Aquatore Park
The Blaine Festival is hosted at Aquatore. This annual community celebration is traditionally held the last full weekend of June. The festival showcases a wide variety of entertainment including a carnival, craft fair, petting zoo, magician, recreational activities, food, and live bands. The event is free, including parking and will be held rain or shine. Find more details and more June Festivals see our annual June Festival Guide.
Birthday Parties at Aquatore Park
The park has two large picnic shelters that can be reserved for rental for birthday parties and other private events. Prices start at $80.34 for residents reserving for a half day and top off at $171.40 for the non-resident full day price.
Bringing the Family Dog to Aquatore Park
If you plan to bring your dog on a visit to Aquatore, the City of Blaine requires all dogs to be on leashes when off their owner's property. This includes parks. However, Aquatore has an off-leash dog area where you can let your family dog run free. It is open during regular park hours.
