Dates are Set for SHARC Water Park Grand Opening!
Sunriver Resort has exciting new experiences to share in 2012 -- including Memorial Day Weekend’s grand opening of the SHARC (Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center) Complex, situated on a 22-acre site near Beaver Drive, Theater Drive and Overlook Road.
Construction of this exciting project began in February 2011. Most of the facility will be open to the general public year-round, including: indoor and outdoor recreation pools, a 15-person outdoor adult hot tub, outdoor lazy river, water slides, tot pool, sand play area, indoor/outdoor café, picnic areas, playground, basketball courts, bocce ball, year-round turf tubing hills (with 3 custom runs with speeds that range from “gentle” to “bomber fast”), event/meeting rooms and an outdoor amphitheater that can accommodate up to 1,000 attendees!
From its groundbreaking in February 2011, workers have labored to deliver the SHARC facility to the Sunriver Resort community on-schedule for its opening day in May 2012. The entire Sunriver community shares in the energy that this colossal, state-of-the-art recreation facility will bring to the area.
Sunriver’s beloved South Pool, the traditional hub of outdoor summer activity for 40+ years, had sadly begun to show its age. At the close of the 2011 summer, even as the community gave a fond farewell to the old South Pool complex, excitement was palpable for the new SHARC complex.
Groups and families alike are already confirming their Summer 2012 reservations in order to be among the first visitors to experience SHARC firsthand. From all accounts, SHARC is the place to be this summer, and many more to come. So, we will “see you on the slides” very soon!
