River Springs Water Park: Closed for the season
There have been questions regarding the recent Waterpark closure, season passes and unused coupons. Here is a brief statement to give some insight on those concerns: On Wednesday, August 17, 2016 the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) informed the Owatonna Parks & Recreation Department that River Springs Waterpark needed to close due to a Cryptosporidiosis outbreak that appeared to involve River Springs Waterpark. They are currently conducting an investigation into this matter. Parks and Recreation staff took immediate action by closing the waterpark and followed the guidelines given by the MDH to ensure the proper protocol was followed to eliminate any potential of the virus being at the waterpark. The safety and health of our patrons is very important to us, so taking extreme caution and keeping the waterpark closed was necessary to eliminate any potential risks to our guests. In the coming weeks, The City will review our policy regarding season passes and 2016 admissions coupons in consideration of the early closure and communicate any potential changes.
Please check back often, as weather & conditions may change.
Cancellations, as soon as they are announced, are updated on this site, and on the cancellation line 444-4321 option 2.
