For the first time in over 10 years, there will be changes made to the Glenwood Hot Springs pool area.

Gone will be the old water slides, miniature golf and kiddie pool at the east end of the pool.

With plans to begin construction in January of 2019, the park will be adding a new interactive water feature as well as an adventure river and more.

The new Adventure River will have a lot of surprising twists and turns like cascading tiers and more to give you the feel of floating down the river.

The expansion and changes, scheduled to open in July of 2019 also will offer an interactive fountain that kids can play in during the day, yet will be lit at night to let swimmers enjoy the scene, as well as those crossing the pedestrian bridge.

The final price tag has not been announced yet but has been in the planning stages for the past two years. Park officials are excited about the additions to the park and we will be excited to check it out next summer.
