Fort Smith, AR

The City of Fort Smith and Sebastian County, Arkansas have partnered on a water park in Ben Geren Regional Park, a County-owned park located in Fort Smith. A study conducted in 2008 revealed a great demand—an unmet need—for an aquatics center within this urban area of more than 250,000.

The County and City partnered and, with a successful vote in 2012, proceeded to design and construction of a $10.9 million water park. Construction started in Spring 2014 and was completed by Memorial Day of 2015.
