A new water park facility is set to open in Grand Junction this June.

Finally, we won't have to drive too far to get cooled down this summer.

I saw the post from Bananas pop up on my Facebook page. Admittedly, I didn't want to get my hopes up. This project has had a couple of hiccups in the past. But, according to officials at Bananas Fun Park, this time it is done deal. This is directly from their Facebook page:

I used to spend my summers at Wisconsin Dells, the world's greatest water park facility. So, I may not be overwhelmed by what this park will be, but it will be a place to cool down and relax during the hot Grand Valley summers. Now, the only question, to Speedo or not to Speedo?
