Last week, Ste. Genevieve broke ground on a new water park. The final installment of an expansion project by Ste. Genevieve county, plans for the park have been in the works for about a year, and it’s expected to be completed within another year.
Previous projects within the expansion included a baseball field, completed in 2015; a playground and tennis courts, completed in 2016; and a sports complex, completed in June of last year. The county passed a sales tax in April of 2017 to fund the water park portion.
