Nick McWilliams reporting – Crews have been working to ensure the Uhrichsville Waterpark will open on time.

An attraction that brings in waves of residents during warmer months, the waterpark has brought in revenue for the city since being built over a decade ago.

Mayor Rick Dorland says that recent efforts have put everything on schedule to open for the Memorial Day weekend.

“No major issues we’ve discovered, so we’re looking forward to it. Its 11 years old. I think this year is No. 11. So we’re going to get her up and running by Memorial Day weekend.”

Crews worked on cleaning, along with some general maintenance, in the complex, which underwent some renovation work during the offseason.

The new slide deck is ready to go, according to Dorland.

“The engineer that designed the waterpark slide deck replacement, he did a final inspection, and it looks great. He said it should last us for many, many years to come.”
