Brighton Oasis draws in 13,000 visitors during opening month

During its first month open, the City of Brighton ’s new Brighton Oasis Family Aquatic Park drew in more than 13,000 visitors. Located at 1852 Bromley Lane , the Brighton Oasis officially opened its doors June 10, bringing in more than 600 visitors during its first weekend.

“We are pleased that so many people are visiting the city’s highly anticipated new aquatic park,” said Parks and Recreation Director Gary Wardle. “With all the great features and amenities available, the Brighton Oasis is a great place to be this summer.”

The park features a lazy river with wave generator, tot pool with play feature, two water slides and a water basketball area. In addition, the park features a full concession stand as well as lockers and a pavilion for birthday parties and rentals.

The City broke ground on the $5.9 million aquatic park last December, which replaces the 50-year-old outdoor pool at Benedict Park.

The park is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Sunday and 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Cost for residents is $2.50 for children 2 to 5, $4 for children 6 to 17 and seniors 60 and older, and $4.50 for adults. Children under 2 are free with a paying adult. Residents must present a resident card to receive the resident rates. For more information on the park or to learn more about prices on season passes and punch cards, visit or call 303.655.2200.
