I hope this means we’re getting a new waterpark! I know this is going to be sad news for those who grew up with the water slide at Hillside Park, but it is no longer there. It had aged beyond repair and the kids had figured out how to launch over the side, so it was time for it to go. I guess the pool is staying, though.
This is all that’s left. I have heard talk about people wanting to get an aquatic center like Dickinson has, and that’d be a welcome addition to our list of recreational facilities in this town. For now I guess we’ll have to go to a hotel or the Mandan Community Center and ride the indoor slides, which are much smaller but still fun.
