City of Rosemead Splash Zone Grand Opening

It was a fun day for the residents of Rosemead on Saturday, July 9th, 2011, when the City of Rosemead reopened the first of two state of the art aquatic centers at GarveyPark.

The lines were long but everyone was really excited to be able to experience all this park has to offer. The new water park includes 2 water slides, 2 splash pay areas and a 1,500 square foot lesson pool.  The Zone also includes picnic accommodations and a new building that houses lockers, showers, and offices.
