A Day at Fontana Water Park

A couple of weekends before my baby daughter's birthday, we went out of town to Angeles City in Pampanga for some relaxing and sightseeing. There was a major traffic that day because of the centennial celebration of one religious sect, however we were able to avoid the crowd along NLEX as we managed to leave the house the earliest time possible. It was not really our original plan, though. The original plan was to drive all the way to Nasugbu, Batangas for a weekend at the beach in Pico Sands. Due to an unforeseen circumstance, we cancelled it and decided to go to Fontana Leisure Park in Clark, instead. So okay, a number of things remained the same, a few are, sad to say, already broken, but some things have improved as well, since the first time I came to this place almost 10 years ago.








I remember it correctly that they used to have their shower rooms and changing area at this spot. Now, they have added amenities like this Water Cottage, Kiddie Pool a few steps away, and then the Big Horn ahead of it.





These Giant Aqua Thrill Slides are an old favorite. Both hubby and I enjoyed sliding like teenagers here.





Our whole family tried this Lazy River. It was fun here, going with the flow with the kids in tow.





And, of course, everyone was thrilled by the Wave Pool which goes into action every 30 minutes. Surprisingly, my elder daughter who is afraid of (sea) waves didn't mind this at all. Towards the midday, it became very crowded as a group of Korean visitors and more local tourists came.





So, after dipping and playing and swimming in the Water Park, off we went to check the Hot Springs, too. The one in the photo is the Lagoon Pool. Do a little walk to the right and you'll see the Cold and Hot Springs area.





A man-made paradise scene. Perfect to take photos here or make it a selfie backdrop.





Suna's facial expression here pretty much explains how happy we were being away from the busy city in a short while. We love this place and we'll definitely go back. Next thing to blog about is the beautiful boutique hotel. Till then! :)
