What Do You Remember About Oasis Waterworks?

We’re deep into winter and starting to be nostalgic for summer! Unfortunately, every time I think of summer in the Tri-Cities I get nostalgic for Oasis Waterworks. I caught myself daydreaming about Oasis the other day and wanted some companionship — join in!
Here are what our members said. Add yours below.

  • Always wanting to go there when I visited Tri-Cities before I moved here, by the time I moved here it was closed
  • Going there every year for my birthday party
  • School field trips & the snack bar
  • It was a wonderful summer activity for my boys
  • Being sun burned and exhausted on the way home
  • Screaming all the way down the slide
  • The seagulls trying to eat my lunch
  • Getting water up your nose at the end of the slides if you didn’t splash right
