NORFOLK, Neb. (US92) -
It's been more than a decade in the making... But a renovated recreational facility in Norfolk, Nebraska was officially dedicated this weekend.
A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Veterans Memorial Park Saturday morning. The newly improved facility includes new football, soccer and baseball fields along with the brand new Memorial Aquaventure Water Park. A large courtyard area is also part of the complex tying each of the facilities together.
Shane Weidner, Norfolk City Administrator said, "The work that went into this, just from the community perspective, and then it's opening today, just speaks highly of the city and it's positive look toward the future. Words just can't express what it's like. It just an amazing thing that's going to last for generations to come."
The idea and discussions for the project began back in 2000, when a task force discovered the need for improvements to Norfolk's swimming pools. After a number of drafts, the public voted to fund the facility in November of 2010. Now, about 18 months later it's a reality.
