New Water Park on Schedule



Excited for summer? So is the Carbondale Park District, and they’re not letting a little snow hold them back from opening the new outdoor aquatic center - Super Splash Park - this Memorial Day. “All in all, we lost two weeks.” said Carbondale Park District Executive Director Kathy Renfro in reference to the snow and ice. But the time off gave contractors the opportunity to finish the bathhouse, and look into the possibility of light fixtures for night time swimming. For now, everything is right on schedule, and that’s a good thing considering residents have been wanting a public pool for about 40 years. The new Splash Park will have a competition pool for hard-core swimmers, and a lazy river for those that just want to relax.
