Daytime birthday party rentals are available again this year, as well as private park rentals from 6 to 8 p.m. every evening.

Wetlands Director Blake Dugger told News Channel 11 that their central location in downtown Jonesborough makes it easy for visitors to hop to and from Main Street, as well as across the town’s many public parks.

“We’re a small town water park, so we have walking trails that lead to our park,” Dugger said. “But people can walk downtown all the way to here. So you can come to the water park and you can go play and everything else throughout Jonesborough.”

Wetlands Water Park is open this summer on Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 6 p.m.
