The world will soon have a new attraction to commemorate the anniversary of the opening of the world’s first swimming pool: a massive swimming pool in the park’s back yard.
Park authorities announced the opening on Friday, a month after opening the park to the public.
The pool is called Parkview.
In addition to a pool, the park also has a cafe and a large plaza with tables, chairs and a video game arcade, according to park spokeswoman Beth Tinsley.
There will also be a large outdoor deck where visitors can relax and play games like pinball and table tennis, she said.
For now, the new pool will be a few feet away from the existing pool, which is about 2,000 feet (610 meters) long and 2,200 feet (700 meters) wide.
Visitors can get a feel for the new space by taking a walk in a boat down the river, Tinsleys said.
