There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than spending a day at Calypso Theme Waterpark in Limoges. Open from August to early September, the waterpark (water parks ottawa) offers a range of fun activities for all ages.

Aside from these, Calypso also takes classic waterpark facilities to the next level. It has over 35 slides that are unique in their own way, rafting facilities, and more than 100 water games to keep the day both action-packed and fun-filled!

Pro Tip:
Get there early and start on the slides! The park’s peak hours are around 1:00 to 5:00 PM, and the lines to the slides around this time are extremely long, so it is best to try the slides before the park gets crowded.

An additional tip is to try to get there on a weekday since it tends to be less crowded.
