"Having the zip line, tube slide, lazy river, drop slide, new body slide, spray playground, as well as swimming features brings the facility into the market of water parks instead of neighborhood pool, and in today's market it is essential that the park district provide these to our residents to continue to create an enjoyable recreational experience."
