Carbondale Splash Park Receives IDPH Approval

Carbondale, Ill. - The Carbondale Park District has received approval on its plans for the Super Splash Park Outdoor Aquatic Center.

Kathy Renfro, Executive Director for the Carbondale Park District, says the Illinois Department of Public Health has signed off on the final plans for the park.

Renfro says a committee is still trying to raise $625,000 to finalize a grant with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Officials hope construction on the park at the Superblock Recreational Fields will be done by May 2015.
