Looking to float around in a lazy
river? Test your skills on a surf simulator? Careen down a water slide? Or
crank out laps in an Olympic sized pool? Look no further than the Williston Recreation Center,
and the opening is right around the corner.
The grand opening of the facility is
36 days away and Darin Krueger, the director for Parks and Recreation, is
extremely excited for the water park the center boasts.
"The entire building here is
pretty fabulous, but my favorite room is the water park area. There's something
for everybody, it doesn't matter how old they are," says Krueger.
The features of the water park are
nothing short of spectacular.
"From the lazy river, or senior
swimming in the morning, or just riding the tubes in the afternoon or night.
The watersides are pretty cool. We've also got the wave rider, its a surfing
simulator for kids that are of all ages. And that's pretty cool," says
Krueger believes this rec center is
not only something Williston needs, but is something that the residents
"I think this facility is a
game changer for Williston. I think this is something when people come in here,
they are going to go holy cow, I can't believe we have this in Williston.
People are talking about this nationwide, and I think there are many people in
Williston who deserve this. We are a great community. We are the fastest
growing micropolitan city in the country. This is something that we need to
improve our quality of life," says Krueger.
The grand opening is March 28 at 4 p.m. You can
stop by the Raymond
Center today and sign up
for membership for the brand new rec center.
