Preparations continue for Aquatic Zoo opening



Bryant said the Splash Pad area should be especially popular for younger children. This area features playground equipment and animal figures that spray water or talk at the press of a button, he said.

I'm really pleased with the types of features that we were able to put in the complete complex,” Bryant said. “We wanted to make sure that the facility had a safari or jungle theme, not a concrete jungle.”

Plummer said one of the main challenges of opening the facility will be not having much time to operate the park without the public being there.

Still, he added he's optimistic about the upcoming opening.

We've got to kind of learn under the watchful eye of the public, so we're going to get as ready as we can and make sure that we're providing a safe environment for the public and hit the ground running,” Plummer said.

Hours for the Aquatic Zoo will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Daily rates are: free for ages 1 and under, $6 for ages 2 to 17, $8 for ages 18 to 64, and $6 for ages 65 and older.
