Water park waives admission fee for Miami residents affected by Irma

MIAMI (WSVN) - A local water park is extending a gentle gesture to help City of Miami residents cool down during post-Irma heat.

According to a news release, Grapeland Water Park will waive their admission fees for all City of Miami residents and employees on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The residents must bring proof of residency or an employee ID.

This comes at a time where thousands continue to be without power due to Hurricane Irma, which has caused intense heat in homes without A/C.

The water park will be open from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Park also said they can accommodate 1,200 guests.
