Castaway Cove Unveils New Changes

Newschannel 6 got a sneak preview of Castaway Cove WaterPark after its extensive remodeling during the winter season.

City leaders were also invited to a tour of completed and ongoing projects at the park. Among the portions of the park that underwent a facelift, re-painted slides and pool re-surfacing.

We spoke with Park Manage Steve Vaughn about the final outcome of the water park and what he expects crowd-goers will say, "I believe everyone's gonna be proud to come out here and go swim this year!"

Vaughn also told us water will be pumped back into the pool sometime next week while they get the chemicals right and prepare for operation.

And it won't be long before swimmers can jump right in. Vaughn tells us the park should open on schedule May 14th, and encourages everyone to come out and have a great splash!
