The Columbus Zoo will open a 22.7 acre water park this summer. Zoombezi Bay will be the first water park in the county to offer admission to both a zoo and a water park on one ticket. The zoo is currently trying to staff enough lifeguards to monitor the water park something other area pools have been struggling with for the past few years.
Once popular only in Australia, salt water swimming pools are now the choice of Central Ohioans too.
With temperatures rising into the mid-90s and heat indices broaching 105 degrees, the National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat advisory for much of Ohio until eight o’clock tonight. In Columbus many people take to public pools to stay cool.
