Shawnee Splash, the new multi-recreational facility in Woodland Park, is up to its brim in attendees.

City Manager Justin Erickson reports more than 10,000 people have utilized the facility since its June 20 opening.

“We’re averaging 575 attendees per day and… last Wednesday we had over 1,000 people, just in that one day,” he said.

Erickson noted that weekday is the “peak time” because of the summer Wednesday Dollar Day program. While regular individual passes range $4-5, entry fees drop to $1 each Wednesday, 1-8 p.m. The program is made possible by an Avedis Foundation contribution.

“The additional $3 or $4 on the entry fee supplements in with this $25,000 grant from Avedis,” Erickson explained.

Commissioner Keith Hall thanked the foundation for sponsoring the program.

“I think that’s tremendous,” Hall said. “The more people that we can have use that facility, the better our community is.”

Erickson added through entry fees and season passes, Shawnee Splash has raised $56,000.

“So we have about $81,000 in revenue off this facility,” he said.

Mayor Wes Mainord noted he and two children recently spent several hours at the water park.

“I don’t know of the two young kids who had the most fun, myself or them,” he said. “If you want to get smiles on your face, just go down to that pool.”
