City Park Waterpark temporarily closed

High waters in the area have forced the closure of popular water park in

City Park Waterpark is temporarily closed due to high water levels in the area.

Water has started to leak into the mechanical room that services the park so power has been turned off to ensure public safety. Until high water levels in the area subside, the waterpark will need to remain closed.

Residents and visitors can still visit one of the city’s other two water or splash parks during the closure and Ben Lee Waterpark will be open later than usual to give visitors an extra opportunity to cool off:

· Ben Lee Water Park, 900 Houghton Road

Open daily this week with extended hours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

· Quilchena Splash Park, 347 Quilchena Drive

Open daily throughout the summer from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
