Summer Punch Passes

Summer discount punch passes can be purchased at the front desk of the Wetlands at Great Bend. These passes can be purchased for $40, and allow fifteen admissions to the water park during the season. Each purchased pass is retained in the office, and can be utilized when you come to the pool. They can be purchased throughout the season. Please note that any unused punches at the end of the season will not be refunded and do not carry over to the following summer! 

Opening Date
May 25, 2024

First Family Swim - June 6, 2023

The Wetlands at Great Bend will open for the season on the Saturday before Memorial Day. Closing date may vary based on the school schedule and availability of staff.   

Weather Policy

A forecasted high temperature of 75 degrees or more is needed for the Wetlands at Great Bend to open. Our decision is based on what the high temperature is expected to be for the day. Cool or rainy mornings are not an indicator of what the weather will be like in the middle of the afternoon. The anticipated weather is the key to our decision. Decisions about closing will not be made before 11:00 AM since weather conditions may improve later in the day. For safety reasons, please keep in mind that threatening storms or inclement weather can force the Wetlands to close for part or all of the day. There will be no refunds if this occurs. Check back often as updates will be posted as soon as decisions are made. You can stay informed on the status of the Wetlands by checking this website, calling our front desk at (620) 792-1516, or by following up on Facebook.
