Busy holiday at Crystal Beach Park


Woodward, Okla. — SPECIAL PROGRAMS

Sunderland said the waterpark will also be offering "several special events throughout the summer."

For the first 3 weeks of the season, the waterpark will host swimming lessons for children.  Beginning Monday, May 27 there will be 3 one-week courses, each lasting Monday through Thursday, with the 45-minute classes held at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

"We still have spots available, you just need to come up to the waterpark anytime to sign up," Sunderland said.

Or you can call the waterpark at 256-2874 for more information.

Then later in the season the waterpark will host "community days," he said.  These are essentially opportunities for local non-profits "to have a fundraiser and they don't have to do anything," he said.

"Starting the second week in July on Mondays through Thursdays, we're going to offer the park after 5 p.m. to non-profits and it will be their day to do with it what they want," Sunderland said.  "They can have a party and bring as many people as they want in.  The waterpark will also still be open to the public.  But we'll give 80 percent of the admissions that we make after 5 p.m. back to the organization."

He explained that the waterpark offers those days and times because "it's usually a slower time for us."

The community day program was started toward the end of last season, he said, "to kind of test the waters a bit."  It turned out to be pretty successful with the waterpark donating "almost $1,000 to a couple of organizations," so the program was continued for this year.

"We'll have over 25 days available," Sunderland said, noting that non-profits can call the waterpark at 256-2874 to learn more about the program and schedule a day.

There will also be other special programs being offered throughout the season including "a couple of night swims," Sunderland said.
