Richland Washington Kiwanis Beach 99352Jim Hale from Orlando, Florida has family here in the Tri Cities and has visited quite a few times. A couple years ago when he visited he thought the area could really use a water park. Not until last July when he visited and temperatures reached 100 degrees did he get more serious about his idea. It wasn't hard for Jim Hale to visualize how a water park in the Tri Cities would look, all he had to do was look at the numerous water parks in his area. For this water park to become a reality sight and sound screen walls will have to be factored into the plans, there will need to be landscape to match standards along I-182, and a traffic study to figure out the best way to handle the traffic increase. This water park would include multicolored water slides, various pools, a gazebo, a gift shop, a concession stand, and locker rooms. There would be slides up to 60-feet tall as well as a fun center with go-kart features. The proposed water park would be built in the Rd 100/Broadmoor/Sandifur area in Pasco, WA. The Pasco planning commission will meet January 21 at 7 pm for a public hearing at the council chambers at city hall. There is also a hearing scheduled for February 18 before the Pasco City Council for action on the planning commission's recommendations. Posted by Colleen Lane on

What happened to the June 2011 ground breaking? I keep watching for it but nothing. I hope it still is a reality because we really do need something like this here in Pasco. Why let people drive all the way to Idaho or Moses Lake when we have a perfect spot here. I'd like an update on whats going on.

You've peaked my curiosity Diana! I just left a message with the City of Pasco as I would like to know as well. - Joe :)
