Revamped Dolphin Park Attracts Scores During East Weather

IT would have easily been mistaken for a hot summer day during the December festive season at Walvis Bay’s revamped Dolphin Park this past weekend – if it had not been for the fact that winter is already here.

The past week’s hot east weather encourage thousands of people from Walvis Bay and Swakopmund to go to the water park to splash, play and cool off in the variety of pools, slides and kiddy pools and sprayers. The water park, with picnic facilities, was recently reopened by Walvis Bay mayor Uilika Nambahu after being closed for renovations and installations last year. The revamp work cost about N$5 million and the opening was delayed to ensure that the facility was safe for all to use.

People stood in long queues to get to the two new featured slides: the Blue Ray and Electric Eel.

General entrance fees had to be paid while those wanting to use the slides had to pay 10 dollars for three turns – with a choice which of the two they wanted to slide in. The old water slide was also still a hit with a non-stop stream of people sliding down.

Although cooler temperatures are anticipated for the rest of the week, hot east weather conditions are expected again this coming Easter weekend, Dolphin Park will once again become a hive of refreshing activity.
