Wild Waterworks will not open for 2020 season in response to COVID-19

To safeguard the health and safety of our visitors and staff, the City of Hamilton endorsed the joint HCA and city staff recommendation to suspend operations for the 2020 season. A safe environment for visitors and community is a top priority for HCA who operates the facility and the City of Hamilton, who owns Wild Waterworks. Physical distancing would not be possible for swimmers in a wave pool or other water attractions.

Wild Waterworks also requires a six-week preparation period to open and with no date set for the lifting of emergency orders as they apply to the limiting of gatherings, training staff and preparing to open would have been extremely delayed, with a very short possible operation period.

Staff will be available beginning Thursday, May 14, 2020, to answer questions about season passes and day tickets. Please contact Wild Waterworks at 905-547-6141 to speak with a staff member.


This was not an easy decision to come to, however, it is in the best interest for the health and safety for the visitors to Wild Waterworks and our staff and during the closure, Wild Waterworks will be undertaking some maintenance, including to the Eazy River and Little Squirt Works to refresh their look for the 2021 season.

We look forward to opening and seeing you at Wild Waterworks in 2021.
