Outdoor and Indoor Water Park Fun in Massachusetts

The State's Outdoor and Indoor Parks

••• CoCo Key Water Resort Danvers

When it's hot in the summer (and it can get plenty hot in Massachusetts), outdoor water parks offer relief as well as fun. When it's bitterly cold in the winter (and I probably don't have to tell you that it can get crazy cold in the winter), climate-controlled indoor water parks offer simulated tropical respites. Thankfully, there are both outdoor and indoor water parks in Massachusetts, which are indicated below.

Before we get to the water parks in Massachusetts, here are some resources to find nearby fun places and make travel plans:

Parks are arranged alphabetically.

    Breezy Picnic Grounds Waterslides Massachusetts
    ••• Breezy Picnic Grounds Waterslides

    Douglas
    Outdoor water park

    It's a bit of a stretch to call Breezy a "water park." The small facility offers three water slides -- and that's about it as far as water park attractions go. Swimming is also available in its lake, and other amenities include game rooms and a snack bar.
