Located in Michigan’s Independence Lake County Park, Blue Heron Bay’s award-winning water features provide a unique experience for the whole family regardless of age or ability. The Splashpad®, Elevations™ structures and waterslides have quickly become the highlight for families visiting the park. While accommodating up to 420 people, the entire waterpark is equipped with the most advanced water conservation technologies. The Water Quality Management System safely recirculates the water efficiently to all park features while reducing water consumption. Due to its significant contribution to the park, the Blue Heron Bay Splashpad received a National Association of County Parks and Recreation Officials (NACPRO) award.
