Summer Fun Starts Now!

NRH2O slides

NRH2O Family Water Park opens for the 2023 summer season starting Saturday, May 13! The park will be open weekends only until until May 27 when daily operations begin.

Did you know, NRH2O was the first municipal water park in Texas and one of the first in the nation? The park opened in 1995 with three body slides, a lazy river, and a wading pool. Today, the 17-acre park has 23 attractions and is considered one of the best water parks in the country! The park has been recognized numerous times by Trip Advisor for service excellence and has received numerous awards from national and international aquatic organizations. “We take pride in knowing that NRH2O continues to exceed guests’ expectations every year,” said Frank Perez, NRH2O General Manager. 

Since its inception, the park has welcomed over 5.8 million visitors and provided jobs to more than 9,000 seasonal team members. NRH2O's success led the way for more water parks throughout the DFW area. Even with the competition, NRH2O takes pride in keeping some things the same since the beginning – FREE parking, FREE coolers, and most importantly a safe and clean atmosphere for families. 

North Richland Hills residents will be happy to know that NRH2O’s expenses are paid by the park's revenue and therefore property taxes are not used to fund the park. Even better, NRH residents receive a discount on admission! Visit to plan your visit.
