ARDMORE, OK -- The Ardmore City Water Park will be officially open for the summer this Saturday, May 24.
City officials say they have hired all the lifeguards, and workers were testing the water and fine tuning the pumps on Tuesday.
The city-operated water park is so popular, reservations for private parties filled up within hours of those bookings opening up.
"Since we did our major renovation a few years ago, the pool stays packed all summer long, especially when the heat comes on. Our pool is open everyday from 12:30 to 6, except for Sundays. That day, it’s open from 2 to 6. We have pool parties 4 nights a week, and those have already been booked," Kevin Boatright with Ardmore Parks & Recreation says.
There are no age limits on who can visit, but children under 7 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
