Waterpark set for Saturday opening

Final touches are be- ing put on the Beardstown Park District’s new Sudbrink Family Water Park, but one last hurdle remains before the new pool can open –– a final inspection by the Illinois Department of Public Health. That inspection was scheduled for Wednesday, May 23.

If all goes as planned, the pool will open Saturday May 26, with an adult swim scheduled from 11:30-12:30 and the pool opening to the public at 12:30.

The water temperature in the pool Monday afternoon was a cool 75 degrees, but with weather forecasts calling for temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s for the remainder of the week, the water temperature is expected to rise. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
