(KRON) — Raging Waters in San Jose is closed for the summer season, and it is not reopening anytime soon. The water park announced Wednesday that it will not be open in 2024.
“We are thankful for the San Jose community and for our outstanding Team Members for helping us bring Northern California’s Largest Water Park to life for nearly four decades. Thank you for all the wonderful memories, San Jose!” it said on Facebook.
Raging Waters’ website paints a similar picture, with the words, “Thanks for the memories, Ranging Waters San Jose!” on its homepage.
“As a part of normal business practice, we continue to evaluate our portfolio each year. After this evaluation, we have decided to not renew our land lease with the city of San Jose,” the water park said in a statement to KRON4.
The park is located at 2333 South White Road. It bills itself as the largest water park in Northern California.
“Raging Waters is a place that has epitomized summer for those of us who grew up in the South Bay,” said San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan. “While I’m sad to see them go, I’m also excited to reimagine what Lake Cunningham can be for our community. We’ve already heard from potential investors who are exploring new recreational uses and business models that might draw even greater interest from residents.”
