The wait is almost over so grab those bathing suits and sunscreen because Splashville will be officially open for the season at the end of the month.

The water park will open Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, close for the work week, then re-open for the season on Saturday, May 28.

As usual, Splashville will offer a variety of classes all summer long.

“We are going to offer water aerobics; the mommy and me class; swim lessons levels 1, 2, 3, 4; lap swimming and fitness walking,” said Splashville manager Cherisa ‘C.V.’ Verastigue.

Since becoming the new manager, Verastigue said there are some things that have been implemented like the ‘cooler pass.’

“You can get it for $10 a day, or you can get it for $100 for the season and we’re working on getting a picture pass for that,” she said. “You can bring a regular sized cooler and bring in containers or bags with food in it, but no fast food, more like sandwiches, snacks and bottled drinks. Factory sealed water bottles are always allowed in at no charge.”

Verastigue said there’s talk of bringing in summer camps to Splashville, but is something that has not been confirmed.

Hours of operation will be Mondays (Monday Mania, $3 all day), 2-7 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays 12-7 p.m.; and Sundays 1-6 p.m. The park will also be open for the Fourth of July.

Verastigue is excited about being a part of the Splashville team and opening for the season.

“I’m looking forward to a smooth summer. I want everything running as smooth as possible,” she said. “Also watching the (life) guards grow and hopefully bringing in more people with the changes we are making.”

From now through May 20, Splashville is offering a special on season passes at $75 instead of the usual $115.
