Williamsburg City Council places water park expansion on hold

Williamsburg City Council announced at Tuesday's meeting that costs have nearly doubled since the city made initial plans to expand Kentucky Splash Waterpark.

As costs skyrocket and inflation continues due to the global pandemic, City Mayor Roddy Harrison announced the expansion might be limited to just waterpark renovations instead.

Initially, the city planned to install a new splash pad, additional campsites, a new waterpark slide attraction, and more, but since the original estimate in May 2019, the total cost of the expansion has doubled by $5 million more than before.

Renovations were tentatively set for March 2022, but those plans are now on hold until the tax credit revenue can be determined.

This is a developing story.
