Summer holidays is not complete until we take a trip to the water park and we feel very fortunate that there are so many to choose from around the Valencian Community. I wanted to share my top three picks of the nearest water parks to visit around Valencia, just over an hour away from our home, it’s very easy to get to and the drive is also a pleasant one.
We try and avoid the peak months so we get the place to ‘ourselves’. June and early July are the best months visit. Otherwise, many popular places are full of tourists and waiting times for rides, slides and flumes can be unbearable and not so ideal if you have smaller kids!
Whether it’s water slides, river rapids, pools, flumes or something for the little ones I’m sure you’ll find something that suits your family and will provide you with many fun and memorable experiences! Bring on the summer!
Segobriga Park Castellon
Located on the top of Mount San Blas, Segobriga Park’s is a medieval themed water park that will take you back in time to a magical medieval past while recollecting the architecture of the city. All the resorts facilities are themed but with the added extras of water slides, waterfalls, and streams that the whole family can enjoy!
While the kids excitedly flit around the giant mushrooms, frog slides, hidden passageways, and water tubes, you can soak in the jacuzzi, relax on the lawn under a parasol or enjoy a drink or two on the terrace overlooking the pool and the amazing mountains Sierra Calderona.
My 8 year old took a field trip here last year with the school and he enjoyed it so much that he wants us to visit this year! It’s a popular spot for Spanish families, and great if you smaller kids and want to enjoy the old town and views of the mountains!
Aquopolis Parque Aquatico Cullera
More suitable for the younger members of the family, Aquopolis Cullera have many attractions dedicated to the little ones, such as the Polynesia, paddling pools, various slides, and a mini park.

The park is suitable for all ages and they have a variety of water slides that will suit diverse tastes including “The Kamikaze” two giant slides set up at a steep angle.
