Parrot Island Waterpark is open daily. We have been hard at work developing temporary operating procedures that follow the CDC guidelines regarding social distancing and the operation of aquatic areas. Our first priority has always been to provide the safest possible environment for all of our valued guests and staff members. Along with enhanced sanitation procedures, there are a number of new procedures that must be followed to enjoy our facilities this year. NOTE: Do not move furniture. All park furniture has been placed six feet apart, per the Arkansas Department of Health's requirement.
