Abandoned Water Park

I was shooting a house in Chestermere (20 min east of Calgary) a couple of weeks ago when I noticed some water slides across the highway. I drove over after my shoot to check them out, but there was not entrance to be found. Eventually I came across some old beat up fence with an over grown road and a little entry hut. After asking around a little I found out that the water park had opened up for only one year in the 1980’s. I guess the people who put it together did a bad job and people where getting hurt on the slides because the connections where not put together right. From what I heard, it closed after that one summer to never be opened up again.

I took these pictures with a Phantom 3 Professional drone. One day I want to get inside the premises and take some pictures from the inside with a proper camera. We’ll see about gaining entry though.

      1. Okay! I was looking for a guy with a controller! Drone photography sounds interesting. What kind of camera do use use for that? How does it minimize the affects of vibration?

      2. Haha nice. Ya it’s fun. The one I am using these days has a camera build into it by the company (DJi). They got a pretty wicked image stabilization built into the camera with a gimbal and everything. It’s pretty impressive what a good job they did with all of that.

      1. Totally! I just went to a water park in the first time in forever. I saw those abandoned slides and wish I had a big backyard to put them in! I’m thinking why didn’t the owners try selling off the slide parts after the park folded.

      2. The park used to be a camp grounds as well , it was all closed down because the sewer system was backing up into the water supply , pathways and grass , due to obvious health reasons it was closed until could be fixed , owner never fixed it !!

  1. My parents and I drove right past this water park while on our way back from Montana. It was really strange to see a water park abandoned and locked up like that. I would love to go back and take pictures of the place though and if possible find a way inside.
