The last waves at Wildwater Kingdom will roll through the park in September.

The water park in Aurora will not reopen after the 2016 season concludes. According to company officials, the final day of the water park will be Monday, Sept. 5. 

The Cedar Fair corporation, which owns Wildwater Kingdom and several other amusement parks, has been working with Bainbridge Township and the City of Aurora to redevelop the property into something to benefit the surrounding communities, according to company officials. 

The company also owns the abandoned Geauga Lake amusement park, also in Aurora.
