Proposition 6: Aquatics Center

Abilene Bond Program Completion StampA 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:

  • Covered patio
  • Lazy river
  • Bathhouse
  • Pair of water slides (a third water slide was added in 2019)
  • Party pavilion
  • 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!
