The staff at the Tullahoma Parks and Recreation Department and the Board of Mayor and Aldermen are pleased to invite the public to the ribbon cutting and open house for the new Splash Island and indoor pool. The ribbon cutting will be held on Monday, July 27 from 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm.
Visitors are asked to enter through DW Wilson, tour the new indoor pool and exit on to the new deck of Splash Island. The Island Snack shack will provide samples of their new menu.
“This is a great time for people to stop by and see this great new facility,” said Mayor Lane Curlee. “The staff is doing an excellent job managing the new facility. They have been averaging more than 600 visitors per day, and many of these visitors are traveling from out of town to Tullahoma.”
The new Splash Island has many new features for children and adults. These include three 25-foot tall slides, a 300 foot lazy river, basketball goal and splash area with features for young children.
Improvements for the indoor pool include a regulation size 25-yard pool with racing lanes, starting platforms and backstroke markers. Another feature is the new touch sensors for the new scoreboard. These changes allow the pool to be sanctioned by USA Swimming, the national governing body for competitive swimming.
