The Courtyard complex has been completely renovated. The spray park at the facility has about 20 features, some above ground, some are embedded. The above ground features include three aquatic animals, a helicopter, tumble buckets, and a toddler slide. Between the big pool and the spray park is a bell-shaped kiddie pool. Both pools have a beach front entry that is wonderful for small children. For the adults and older
children we have a 3 story slide that has 3 sharp turns before depositing the rider into a 3.5' splash zone. Also, two one meter diving boards are to the far left of the pool. We also have two tents (one misting) for parties and shade, a covered patio for eating and a 3-tiered deck for sun bathing.
