The Winston Lake Aquatic Park is currently on schedule to open Memorial Day weekend. The $5 million 2014 bond project will turn Winston Lake Park into an aquatic park with a pool, slide, bath house and lazy river.

Ground was broken on the Winston Lake Aquatic Park on Friday, July 22, 2016. The city is hoping to make it into a major water attraction.

At the time of the groundbreaking, City Council Member Derwin Montgomery, who represents the East Ward, which contains the park, said: “What we are doing here today is something that will allow people for generations to come to enjoy the greatness that is Winston Lake Park.”
Winston Lake Park, which is located near the corner of New Walkertown and Waterworks roads, is a park with its own lake that was used for fishing. From 1963 to 1992 it also had a pool.
The aquatic park will have a variety of attractions:

*A pool that will be 82 feet long by 45 feet wide and range in depth from 3.5 to 5.6 feet.

*A shallow, zero-entry pool that’s 70 feet around with a 22-foot- tall water-play structure with sprinklers and slides.

•A water slide that will be more than 16 feet high and 111 feet long.

*A 625-foot lazy river complete with inner tubes provided.

*A 5,800 square-foot bathhouse with a covered outdoor concession area.

*A “water journey” simulated river with a waterfall and bamboo spray misters and water jets along the river channel.

There will also be new parking lots with 182 new parking spaces added to accommodate the expected crowds.
