Aquatic Zoo Waterpark Opening Day
Parks and Recreation
Wednesday, July 01, 2020
11:00am to 6:00pm
After much consideration, the city of Mt. Vernon is pleased to announce that we are opening the Aquatic Zoo on July 1st for the summer to limited capacity. Precautions will be taken to provide a safe as possible environment for our guests to enjoy the facility and cool off for the remainder of the summer.
The facility will operate normal hours (11 am to 6 pm Monday through Saturday and 12 pm to 6 pm on Sunday). Occupancy will be limited to 50% of the facility capacity. Due to the short lead time prior to opening and the shortened season, there will be NO swim lessons, evening rentals or birthday parties. Also, season passes will not be issued. Price of entry remains the same, ages 2-17 and seniors 65 & older - $6.00, Adults $8.00. However due to limits on occupancy, there will not be a large group rate.
Staff members will sanitize restrooms, lounge chairs, tables, lockers and other surfaces routinely. With the addition of deck spacing around the facility, lounge chairs will be spaced out to provide distancing between guests. Employees working the gate entry and concessions will be required to wear a mask when dealing with our guests. We will encourage all guest that are not of the same family to follow social distancing guidelines.
We look forward to seeing you at the Aquatic Zoo!
