One of the most difficult decisions made by the Kankakee Valley Park District Board of Commissioners was to close Splash Valley after the 2015 season due to extensive mechanical and infrastructure issues.
At the time, the upkeep and repairs to the facility were beyond the financial means of the District. While it was a difficult decision, the Commissioners had the best interest of the District and taxpayers in mind when they made the decision in the spring of 2016.
The Board of Commissioners and Staff are proud to announce the District met their goals for financial recovery in a short amount of time! We are pleased to announce that the District has sold a bond specifically for the renovations and rebuilding of Splash Valley!
The target for reopening Splash Valley is set for the 2020 season! Thank you, Kankakee, for your patience during the process of our financial recovery. Your support and encouragement has sustained us along this difficult path.
