Family

Whether you’re an actual kid — or just a kid at heart — Waterloo is bursting with opportunities to explore, feed your curiosity and get your play on.

Experiences that
make Memories

Need to work off some energy? Swim and slide at Lost Island Waterpark. Put around on the mini-golf course. Or practice your flip on the giant jumping pillow at Palmer’s Family Fun.

Ready for a picnic? Take in the natural beauty along the scenic trails at George Wyth State Park. Or enjoy live music at the Riverloop Amphitheatre, followed by a dip in the splash fountain.

Learn something new while you’re here, too! Play mad scientists at the Bluedorn Science Museum. Channel your inner Picasso at the Waterloo Center for the Arts. Or travel back in time to WWII at the Sullivan Brothers Veterans Museum.
