“The total cost of the project was about $ 7.7 million,” said development director Tim Haglund in an email. “This includes a $ 7.2 million grant from the Joan B. Croke Foundation and about $ 500,000 in domestic support.”

Indoor Water Park and Fitness Center will open on December 4th.

Construction of the new water park began in mid-2020

Construction began in May 2020 with Simonson Construction leading the project. Ashland-based rainwater harvesting products in collaboration with sub-contractor High Tech Pool and Pul Construction Company contributed to the project.

After a delay, partly due to a shortage of national supply chains, the Croc Center Water Park and Fitness Center will open on December 4.

The private donation went to shallow water and slides, said Major Analis Francis.

The water park includes a lazy river, two slides, basketball court and other fun pools. Because the pool is fun, the water is kept at a temperature of 82 degrees and is 4 feet 6 inches deep, Francis said.

The Mety Black Fitness Center on the other side of the water park includes treadmills, exercise bikes, weight lifting stations and elliptical vehicles.

“It was amazing to see him come to life,” says Francis.

Francis has been drawing and designing documents for years and now seeing the park work is a real treat.
