And the Oasis Outlet provides everything you need for a fun day in the sun, from squirt guns and beach balls to sunscreen and swim shirts. Even though Water Oasis is getting bigger, the park’s prices are not. Gilroy Gardens Value Memberships are still available at the season-lowest price of $48 for both children and adults—but this special offer ends on July 4, 2018. For even bigger benefits, members can upgrade to a Premium card, which includes unlimited daytime admission, free parking, early access to the Water Oasis, and admission to the special night-time events: Halloween at Night (September 21- October 28) and Holiday at Night (November 30 – December 31). Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park is open daily through August 13, and on weekends and select weekdays and evenings through December 31.
