Carlsbad Water Park

Welcome!

The Carlsbad Water Park opened on the shores on the Pecos River by early summer 2016. The park was paid for by the City of Carlsbad Lodger’s Tax and general fund money, following overwhelming support by members of the community.

The park is located at 708 Park Drive, along the Pecos River. From Highway 285, exit east on Church Street. From Highway 62, exit north on Park Drive. Parking is available to the north of the Carlsbad Water Park.

Hours of Operation are Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. During this time period, we will be open Tuesday through Sunday during the summer break, and on weekends only once school has resumed (prior to Labor Day). We will be open on Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Admission is $5 for ages 4-61. Guests who are  under four, or age 62 and over, are free! The park features three water slides (must be 48 inches or taller to ride), a lazy river, and a zero entry children’s play area. We welcome picnics, but no glass containers. Covered and poolside lounge chairs and free wifi are available.

Brad Alpers is the manager of the Carlsbad Water Park. Mr. Alpers can be reached at waterpark@cityofcarlsbadnm.com or by calling (575) 887-0349.

Announcements

Reminder: The Carlsbad Water Park will soon move into its later summer schedule to adjust to the onset of the school session. Our last regular weekday open will now be *Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017.  *The schedule was moved 
up by a single day due to staffing issues and several school orientations taking place that week. 

We will continue to be open only on Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day weekend. The Carlsbad Water Park’s last day this year will be on Labor Day (Sept. 4, 2017). We hope you are having a great summer and are enjoying 
your time at the Carlsbad Water Park. If you have any questions, please call us at (575) 887-0349. Thank you!
