New aquatic center opens at Ponca State Park –
PONCA, Nebraska – A brand new aquatic center is now officially open at Ponca State Park, and just in time for the heat of summer. “It came about mainly because our old pool had some issues that we had to deal with and they were the kind of issues that we really couldn’t fix and needed to replace that facility so that’s what got the conversation started,” says Jeff Fields, Superintendent at Ponca State Park. The aquatic center features a heated pool, 170-foot-long waterslide, climbing wall, diving board, splash area as well as a zero depth entry point. “We’re just happy to have the facility finally open,” says Forrest Kramer, aquatic center visitor.
