Chilli Bay ran a lifeguard training test today (Thursday) and the water temperature is rising each day. Good weather today and in the forecast for the near future has led to the decision to open Chilli Bay.
Friday, June 7, will be opening day at noon until 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at noon will be the grand opening date, where the city will have Hawaiian leis for the first group of customers while supplies last.
A ribbon-cutting event with the Chamber of Commerce and tours at the Mayor’s coffee will be on Wednesday, June 12, at 10 a.m.
Chilli Bay will host several special events and special pricing over the course of the summer. Please listen for radio ads and look for newspaper announcements as the city begins this swimming season.
The Mayor would like to thank the citizens and Park Board members who participated in the surveys and supported the workshops in order to make this a special facility, that is unique and adds to the quality of life in Chillicothe. He also thanked Josh Norris and Janice Shaffer for getting this facility ready and providing a professional family fun destination for everyone.
