[ARCHIVED] Nixon Water Park reopening Monday, June 27 for summer 2022 season

Nixon Water Park

After a three year closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jackson residents will once again be able to make a splash at a popular community pool. The City of Jackson Parks and Recreation Department is planning to reopen the Nixon Water Park to residents on Monday, June 27 for the summer season. 

The water park was closed for the 2020 and 2021 seasons due to the pandemic. Along with public health concerns, it would have been difficult to open the water park due to mechanical issues and staffing shortages. The City is now partnering with the Jackson YMCA to make sure the pool is fully staffed with lifeguards. While work has been ongoing since this spring to reopen the pool, mechanical and supply delays prevented the facility from reopening earlier this month. 

Parks and Recreation Department Director Kelli Hoover says her staff is working hard to get the pool in shape. “This will be a welcome return for the entire community. We’re looking forward to providing summer fun once again at the Nixon Water Park,” Hoover said. 

The Nixon Water Park is located inside Nixon Park at 400 E. North St. It contains a water slide, full pool, waterfall, and wading area. The complex also hosts an event space for community use. During the 2019 season, the facility saw around 19,000 visitors. 

The water park will be open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Aug. 20. The cost is $5 per person or 10 swim passes for $40. Extended daily hours are likely to be announced later this summer.
