Surf n Slide water park in Moses Lake will not open for 4th of July weekend as originally planned
- Downtown Moses Lake, WA
The city of Moses Lake has announced the delay in opening downtown’s Surf n Slide water park due to rising cases of COVID-19.
The water park will not be open for the July 4th weekend because Grant County has not been approved to enter Phase 3 of the state’s reopening plan due to rising COVID-19 cases in the Moses Lake, Quincy and Mattawa areas.
“We’ve listened to the public’s concerns and will be working on refunding season pass holders,” Recreation Supervisor Tom Los said.
The season has been cut short and if the water park does open later this summer, admission would be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“We hope to be open by the end of July.” Los said.
Los encouraged everyone to please wear their mask to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Moses Lake has became the county’s epicenter passing Quincy at 167 cases. The county has seen 6 deaths so far 14 hospitalizations and 578 confirmed total cases county wide.
The city of Moses Lake has not addressed residents or the media on plans they have to control and contain the new spreading of the virus, nor has the city said they are working with local health officials, business owners or law enforcement.
