This much-anticipated boardwalk-style swimming facility and entertainment complex will soon be open to the public! The City will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony and tours of the facility on Friday, May 19, with the grand opening to take place on Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29.
Located at beautiful Emerald Glen Park, this 31,000-square foot facility is anchored by an indoor pool for year-round swimming lessons, exercise programs, and recreational use. Outdoors, there is a sports pool for competitive swimming and water polo, featuring eight lanes for competition and three warm-up lanes. This is a 48-foot waterslide tower with two speed slides, three loop slides, and a large “super bowl" slide. For the youngsters in the family, the splash pool features a beach-style entry with a large play structure, water dumping buckets, and a splash pad with a variety of fun spray features.
Other amenities include group picnic areas with shade structures, outdoor ping pong tables, locker rooms, party rental space, a community room, and administrative offices. The project also includes an outdoor amphitheater for year-round concerts, additional parking, and a plaza featuring public art.
