Those of you who fondly remember spending hot summer days at the Casino pool, you will be pleased to know that plans for a new community pool are well underway. In fact, construction is well underway. Yesterday, the Brunswick News featured an article with an aerial photo illustrating Water World’s progress. I am impressed! Plans call for an oceanfront water park featuring a lap pool, splash (children’s) pool, and large zero-entry recreational pool. Besides looking cool, the zero-edge feature (sloped much like the beach) allows for easy handicap accessibility. Additionally, the former mini-golf course, now closed, is being relocated to the area surrounding the pool. A large bathhouse is also under construction, which will feature restrooms and a concession booth. If construction continues as scheduled, the new community water park will open in time for summer. Water world is the highlight of the new St. Simons Island Pier/Village master plan, which includes plans for a new playground, a wider beach walk, fresh landscaping, and an overall revitalized park area.
