What could be more fun than romping around in over 377,000 gallons of water and racing down 400’ of water slides?  In its first three days of being open in 2009, over 1000 people jumped, slid, and swam into fun at Springfield’s 10-acre Splash Zone Family Aquatic Center.  The park opened in 2007 at a cost of $6 million and is a public facility owned and operated by the National Trail Parks & Recreation District, Springfield’s parks department.  In addition to the waterslides, the park also features a 280’ lazy river, Ohio’s first bowl slide, a 25’ competition lap pool, a beach-style entry pool, heated areas,  diving boards, children’s sprayground, as well as a bathhouse and basketball court.  Splash Zone was built to replace the 50-year old “Family Waterworks” on Bechtle Ave.
