UPDATE - Rosemeade Rainforest Projected to Open Mid-July; City Expands Partnership with Farmers Branch
The City of Carrollton Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex (1334 E. Rosemeade Parkway) is now projected to open mid-July due to weather-related construction delays. An exact opening date will be dependent upon Mother Nature.
Because of the delayed opening, daily entrance fees once the pool is open will be discounted to $3 per resident and $6 per non-resident on both weekdays and weekends.
The City of Carrollton has partnered with the City of Farmers Branch for Carrollton residents to be able to visit the Farmers Branch Frog Pond Water Park for daily admission at the resident rate of $5 per person. Carrollton residents will also be able to purchase season passes to the Frog Pond Water Park at the resident rate of $50 per person three years and older, $130 per family (up to four members), and $10 per additional family member. Frog Pond season passes purchased by Carrollton residents will be honored at Rosemeade Rainforest once it is open.
Frisco-based Gold Medal Pools, the company making the voter-approved improvements to the Rainforest, gave an update to the Carrollton City Council at the meeting on Tuesday, June 4. President Josh Sandler said the company regularly includes an estimation of rain days in its construction proposal. Sandler said Gold Medal Pools estimated approximately 17 days of rain over the course of the Rosemeade construction, but there have been 94 days since the project began.
"We are committed to this project,” Sandler said. “This delay is not due to lack of manpower, but to a lack of a window of time to work. We’ve fought hard to work through the weather.”
UPDATE - Farmers Branch Water Park Open to Carrollton Residents Beginning May 25 During Rainforest Renovation
The City of Carrollton Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex (1334 E. Rosemeade Parkway) opening, including swim lesson registration and private party rental opportunities, continues to be postponed for weather-related construction delays.
An exact opening date has not yet been set and will be dependent upon Mother Nature, so the City of Carrollton has partnered with the City of Farmers Branch for Carrollton residents to be able to visit the Farmers Branch Frog Pond Water Park beginning Saturday, May 25 for daily admission at the resident rate of $5 per person. This arrangement is good for daily admission, but not season passes and will be honored until the Carrollton facility opens.
Although the facility opening and swim lesson registration has been delayed, the City has found a way to offer swim lessons at the Carrollton Farmers Branch Independent School District Natatorium Monday, June 3 through Thursday, June 13 in the afternoon hours. Registration will be available for Carrollton residents beginning Friday, May 24. For more details, visit cityofcarrollton.com/signupnow.
