Parents, this is an exclusive opportunity to swim with your child without the big kids around. Bring your little ones and enjoy some quiet time! You’ll have access to the shallow pool, which includes 2 tunnel slides and a boat slide, play Young Child Enjoying Tot Time1.jpgfeatures and floatables. Even better - when Rock River Rapids opens to the public, you may stay and swim!

This activity is restricted to children 5 years old and younger, and they must be accompanied by a patron 16 years or older at all times. Ratio is 2 children per adult and regular admission is required. Not valid with any other coupons.  Tot Time begins at 11:00 am and runs until 12:15 pm. TOT Time participants MUST exit the park at 12:15 pm. Tot time takes place on Saturdays only during the summer season. Admission is $5 per person. Children 2 and under swim free.   

Join us virtually on August 1 and 8  at 10 am for a mermaid tale story prior to coming to Tot Time to make mermaid memories of your own.  Thank you to the Derby Public Library for presenting our stories and providing a great start to the day!
