Chesapeake Beach, MDTucked neatly just inside Fishing Creek; off of the Chesapeake Bay is Southern Maryland’s only Water Park; Chesapeake Beach Water Park(CBWP).

Opened in 1995, the Water Park is owned and operated by the residents of Chesapeake Beach. The adjacent Northeast Community Center is run by Calvert County Parks & Recreation and houses a gym. The park itself is a family-friendly destination complete with Water Slides, Waterfalls, a Lazy River, an Activity Pool, an Outdoor Grill, & more to provide a fully packed fun-in-the-sun vacation.

The Beachcomber Grill offers pizza, burgers, salads, smoothies, snacks, and treats such as Hawaiian shaved ice, Dippin’ Dots, and funnel cake. No alcohol is served. No outside food is allowed.

Coming up on July 17, 2019, is the Park’s 25th Anniversary celebration. They will be closing the park early on Wednesday, July 17th to celebrate with the community. This will be an adult only, Splash Free Celebration. You will enjoy live music provided by John Luskey at sunset with appetizers, drinks, and views of the park like you’ve never seen. I can promise that when the features turn off, the CBWP is one of the most beautiful places in all of Southern Maryland. The ticket for the event is $5 and can be purchased on the website. They do note that food, wine, and ber is not included but will be available.

Tickets to the park cost range from $27-$29 during the week and $32-$37 on the weekends for general admission. Residents of Calvert County and Chesapeake Beach receive discounts.
