August 17, 2017

We are almost done with the project! This Wednesday, August 23, the State Health Department will complete its inspection. Once we pass inspection (which we should on Wednesday because we have the world’s best maintenance crew!) we will open the following day. Thank you for your patience and we can’t wait to show you our work!

Welcome to Adventure Island’s construction update page. We are pleased to provide you with consistent updates throughout the construction process. Although we are still in the early stages of construction, check back to this page for the most up-to-date information; we will post information as we know it.

The Project

Opened in 2002, Adventure Island still has a lot of its original features. This project will update most of the features including:

  • Refinishing and painting the ceiling
  • Replacing the lights with LED fixtures
  • Slide refinishing
  • Play feature replacement and repairs
  • Floor refinishing
  • Filter media replacement
  • Counter replacement
  • Painting in the locker rooms
  • Floor repairs in the shower area
  • ADA modifications

The planned start date for the project is June 5 with the pool shutting down on June 4 for preparation. We will have one week of summer open swim hours, from May 27 – June 3. Summer hours are:

  • Monday – Thursday: 12 – 6 pm
  • Friday: 12 – 8 pm
