Water World to Unveil New Attractions 
With weather-related construction delays behind us, Water World is getting set to open a new, Colorado-themed area of the 70-acre park. Alpine Springs is a hat-tip to our beautiful State and the Colorado flag featuring two new attractions: Roaring Forks and Centennial Basin, each offering a unique ride experience.

ROARING FORKS: Colorado now has two water coasters in operation! Joining the hydromagnetic Mile High Flyer, a park favorite, Roaring Forks utilizes patented water nozzle propulsion for this two-guest water coaster experience. The two dueling paths allow riders to see and taunt their competitors as they go from enclosed space to open air splashes tackling hills, fast corners and featuring WW first open-air saucer turns.
CENTENNIAL BASIN: Sharing an elevated tower with Roaring Forks, this two-person raft experience will fill your heart with Colorado pride as you whirl down an enclosed tube with visual effects that make you feel you are descending at a quicker rate than you actually are. Riders will splashdown into a Colorado-themed mega-bowl where rotations eventually lead to the tube to the runout area.

World’s Largest Swimming Lesson June 17th
Since 2010, Water World has participated in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson sponsored by the World Waterpark Association, and where 85 countries participate. The goal is to build awareness and generate attention, globally, to the vital importance of teaching kids how to swim.
Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death of children ages 1-14 in the United States. This year, to reach more people, Water World will participate by producing a video version of the swim lesson and will make it widely available to the community.
 
The video will feature World’s Largest Swimming Lesson protocols taught by some of our lifeguards, to youngsters participating in the District’s FREE Be-A-Fish Learn to Swim Program. The program is open to elementary-aged Hyland Hills Residents and WPS students. Since its inception, the program has provided more than 12,000 free swim lessons and we believe an excellent complement to the goals and intentions of the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.
 
Note: The Be-A-Fish program lessons consist of a 2-week course of daily, half-hour swim lessons, administered by trained Water World lifeguards at Carroll Butts and Splashland pools. The classes will be given in June and July with various time options to choose from. Upon completion of the program, your child will receive a congratulatory certificate of accomplishment. Please plan to take advantage of this opportunity to teach your children the basics of water safety and swimming, courtesy of the Hyland Hills Foundation. Space is limited, so sign up today by calling: 303.428.7488 or 720.656.4227

Parks Department Says Thanks! 

Members of the Hyland Hills Parks Department want to thank the Hyland Hills community for its help in keeping trash to a minimum during the heavier-than-usual park visits sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic. Park visits became wildly popular and so important to home-bound families looking for a place to take the kids. With park maintenance a priority, our parks crew asked for the community’s help in picking up trash at the end of family visits during this busy time, and the community responded in a big way, so THANK YOU!


The crew has been recognized for their exceptional work by the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association as part of a “Heroes” series in the June issue of their monthly magazine, Byline!
Clear Creek Valley Park Playground Named to
Top 10 in Metro Area!

The Denver Post ran a lengthy story about the ten best playgrounds for children in the Denver metro area (May 27th) and we are so proud that our Clear Creek Valley Park was among the honorees.

The article commended the playground’s creative features including the zip line, mining area, whimsical treehouse, and larger than life watering can that kids can play in, as well as the Fitness Zone outdoor workout facility. Indeed, Clear Creek Valley Park is worthy to be among the top ten and a huge source of pride for the Hyland Hills community.
