The original pool and building opened in 1938. While the park has maintained and improved the area over the years, significant investments transformed the outdoor pool by replacing a shallow baby pool with the Fountains of Fun Splash and Spray in 2016. The pool is now heated, and includes large inflatables, added in 2017. We’ve enhanced the refreshment stand menu, extended our hours, and added live music and themed nights in 2018 and 2019. Comparing attendance and revenue from 2015 to 2019, the pool’s business is now 4 times larger, with revenue increasing by 357% because of these strategic investments.
In addition to pool improvements, the historic building has not been forgotten. With its large Palladian style windows, the stone building with slate roof, adjacent to Oglebay’s pool is one of the most popular buildings in the park.
