Much to the delight of area children, the new WaKeeney Water Park was completed in June 2007. The Water Park was constructed on the site of the old city pool at Swimming Pool Park. In addition to the Water Park, Swimming Pool Park features two playgrounds appealing to different age groups, a picnic shelter, and public restrooms. The new facility was designed to provide more recreational features for all ages to enjoy. Included is a zero-depth, beach-like entry. The new Water Park features a large slide as well as a toddler slide, a dump bucket,and deck sprays. There are additional lap lanes and diving boards. A deck with scattered shade structures as well as concessions and an accessible bathhouse were all designed for everyone's enjoyment. The Water Park is open daily from the end of May through the middle of August from 1-5 pm, Monday -- Friday, and 1-5 pm, Saturday and Sunday, with special evening hours from 6-8 pm, Tuesday and Thursday.
