  • Construction of the new city-owned Chilli Bay Water Park in Simpson Park is on schedule, with opening day set for Saturday, May 25.
    The project is about 75 percent complete, according to City Administrator Ike Holland. Holland met with representatives of the project contractor, 2 Point Construction, Thursday afternoon and said that the project is poised to be substantially completed by the first week in May, and that water will fill the facility around mid-May.
    “A lot of things are going to happen in the next three weeks,” Holland said.
    During the next week or two, many of the pool’s features will be installed, including a big slide as well as play activities for the younger guests (slide, ladders, sprayers).
    Weather delayed work on the expanded parking lot, but it is anticipated that the lot will be finished within the next week or two.
    “2 Point Construction is doing a very good job, especially under the circumstances of the cold weather,” Holland said
    The park is designed to divide up activities by age groups — including an area targeted to appeal to young children up through 8 or 9 years of age, and an area designed for children ages 10 to 18.
