About the Park

Pittsburgh's Hometown Waterpark

Nestled next to a boardwalk overlooking the Monongahela River and a beautiful wooded hillside, Sandcastle Waterpark in Pittsburgh is the perfect destination for summer fun! Featuring sixteen Pittsburgh's best waterslides, two full size pools, two children's play areas and a lazy river, Sandcastle has something to do for everyone!

Our History

Sandcastle Waterpark was founded in 1989 after Kennywood Entertainment purchased an old rail yard that serviced the U.S. Steel Homestead Works. Mr. Harry Henninger thought the only thing that could make Pittsburgh an even greater place to live, was to build a waterpark- so that's what he did! The once industrial artifact of the Guilded Age was transformed into an extraordinary vacation oasis for families to celebrate summer fun. Nestled along the beautiful shores of the Monongahela River, Sandcastle amazes visitors with it's beauty and tranquility. Sandcastle very quickly became a favorite spot for so many families that we grew to offer the wide variety of water slides and attractions our guests enjoy today.
