New Fun at Nashville Shores

A massive, all-new adventure on the lake awaits your family this summer at Nashville's premier water park.

Nashville Shores offers your family a big new way to make a splash this season with the opening of it’s brand-new, gigantic floating Aqua Park.

The interactive, floating playground on the lake features 40 colorful, interconnected water elements like monkey bars, wiggle bridges, hurdles, action towers, half pipe slides and more. The structure’s design allows guests to run, balance, slide and jump right on the lake.


Kids must be a minimum of 7 years old and at least 48 inches tall. Life jackets are a requirement, and Nashville Shores provides them.

The Aqua Park has a capacity limit, and there is a timed reservation system on the beach at the park. It’s best to reserve your time slot as soon as you arrive so you get the time you want. Currently, time slots for the Aqua Park are available in 20-minute increments.


Of course, there's so much more fun at the park, including the popular Breaker Bay Wave Pool, Castaway Creek Lazy River, Music City Racer and other slides and the hot spot for littles, Kowabunga Beach. Nashville Shores hosts special events this summer that are free with park admission. The Barefootin' Bay Concert Series takes place Fridays, June 8 – July 3 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. This season's lineup includes Tom Mason and the Blue Bucanneers, B.B. King's Blues Club All-Star Band, Stretta, The Aquaducks, School of Rock and Skallywags. Find more family fun in "Things To Do." July brings the 2018 Dive-In Movies series.
