Carbondale Splash Park prepares to open in May

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- In May, hundreds will get out bathing suits to try out Carbondale's new Splash Park.

Friday, News 3 got a chance to catch crews as they worked putting in the slides. The Splash Park will offer a lazy river, 8-lane competition pool and leisure pool. The $3.7 million project has been in the works since 2012, amidst funding delays.

Carbondale Park District Executive Director Kathy Renfro said she's excited to see the place filled with children.

"I just feel so grateful for everybody's patience, for their support," said Renfro. "People really stayed with us on it. You know, it's been a long time and there's nothing worse than a delay in the middle of a construction project."

Renfro said the Splash Park is expected to be open May 28.
