Shifferdecker Pool Opens!

Updated:

It was a beautiful day outside and what a better way to spend it than at the new Shifferdecker pool and aquatic center in Joplin.

The $5.3 million dollar water park was built by R.E. Smith Construction Company. It features multiple water slides, a rock wall, a concession stand, a kids only pool, a high dive and a lazy river. For opening day there was quite a crowd with long lines at the slides.

Recreation Manager Paul Bloomberg says the guest love how family friendly the park is.

"Well when I first walked through the gate, it looks like their mouths dropped and you know Joplin has never had anything like this at all, it beats Pittsburg and they just look flabbergasted on how awesome it looks I mean we finally have a water park in Joplin" says Bloomberg.

This is the 4th swimming pool built at Shifferdeck park.
