Bethalto Splash Pad Ready For Summer

Story by WBGZ Radio

The construction of a splash pad in Bethalto is done, and the grand opening has been planned for May 25th at 1pm. The splash pad replaces the pool, which the village decided to close permanently a couple of years ago once it became apparent the scope of the repairs needed to repair the 65-year-old facility.

Mayor Alan Winslow tells The Big Z with the closing of the Wood River Aquatic Center, he expects the splash pad to experience capacity crowds.

He says the splash pad will actually have a longer season than the pool, possibly into the middle of September. The village approved a contract this week to staff the concession stand with workers from the Boys & Girls Club of Bethalto.
