[s7] Sen. Brandt Hershman Breaks Ground on New Prophetstown State Park Aquatic Center
Start Date: 10/15/2012Start Time: 12:00 AM

Entry Description

State Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Buck Creek) and Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials today broke ground on a Prophetstown State Park aquatic center expected to attract more visitors and generate revenue growth for the park.

Hershman, who worked with DNR and Indiana Financing Authority officials for several years to identify funds for the construction of the $6-million aquatic center, said the attraction will do much more than help fill the park’s campgrounds, though.

“Battleground and Tippecanoe Township residents have specifically named access to swimming as an important concern during public meetings,” Hershman said. “I’m pleased to have had the opportunity to work with DNR representatives in providing a facility that will help generate more business for the park while also giving area residents a new, safe recreational outlet.”

Hershman said he’s also pleased that the new aquatic center is expected to create 18 to 22 lifeguard jobs during the summer months.  

DNR officials said the new pool facility is scheduled to open next summer.

Prophetstown State Park opened to the public in fall 2004, offering a 150-site campground, two trails and a 1920s living history site to local residents and out-of-town guests. For more information, visit http://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/2971.htm.
