Blue Heron Bay Splash Park


Independence Lake's Blue Heron Bay is the perfect place for some fun in the sun! Whether you are playing on the water play structure, gliding down their new water slides, or just catching some shade in their rent-able pavilions, there is something for everyone! Your kids will be sure to have a great adventure with their water jet spider, cattails, and buckets. The concessions area is a great place to take a break from all the excitement while enjoying a hot meal and a cold drink. Just 8 miles off US 23.
