Kids and parents alike are getting ready to enjoy the summer weather and Saturday they did just that.
It was the first day of the season for Dragonland Water Park in Pekin. The Superintendent of Recreation, Shawn Powers, said he's always excited for the first day.
"There's nothing better than going to the pool in the summer for the family. There's something for the kids to do, something for the adults to do. Lots of memories that you build over the summer and family time is just the most important thing and a pool is the best place to do that," stated Powers.
He also said there is a hole in the community for aquatics this year with the loss of Lakeview Aquatic Center and Splashdown Water Park. They are expecting to be busy and said they are ready to serve anyone who wants to come in.
Dragonland is open through August 12th.
