After suffering Hurricane Irma-related damage, the Park’s Family Entertainment Center (Dry Side) and Water Park are reopened, and operating on the normal schedule.

The community’s strong and immediate response to Hurricane Irma showed our true colors and I am grateful for the support we received from our dedicated staff, valued vendors and public officials. The park is open and running on our regular schedule for the remainder of the year while we continue to work diligently to repair and restore the areas of the park that were damaged.”
