A total of $6,000,000 of the 2015 bond package was used to fund a full renovation of Rose Park Pool. Abilene's new aquatic center, Adventure Cove, opened at Rose Park in June 2017, and includes:
Pair of water slides (a third water slide was added in 2019)
Zero-depth beach entry
The center has been designed with the future in mind, providing space to eventually add features and expand the lazy river. To date, Adventure Cove has been a hit; during the summer of 2019 alone, it had approximately 50,000 visitors!
