Spend a couple of hours, or maybe the whole day with family and friends! Dare the water slides, soar from the high-dive or lounge away in the Lazy River. Enjoy our zero-depth entry pool or do laps in our 25 meter pool. Can your kids make it across the log bridge without falling in? Swim, splash, soak or sun at Mt. Vernon’s Aquatic Zoo! Visit Mt. Vernon’s favorite summer destination—the Aquatic Zoo in Lincoln Park at 1700 South 34th Street just off of Veteran’s Memorial Drive.

The Aquatic Zoo is quick & easy to find! Located just east of Exit 94 from I-57. Just take the exit, go east on Veterans Memorial Drive then make a right onto South 34th Street. You’ll see our waterslides and tubes in plenty of time. We’ve got ample & accessible parking for any vehicle.
