Members Made a Splash at The Waterpark


memberappreciation1Starting this summer Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) showed their members some love at their Member Appreciation Nights. The event included after-hours access to The Waterpark and a line-up of fun activities for the whole family. From s’mores to duck races down the water slide it would be impossible to pick a favorite activity, simply because EVERYTHING was fun!


Throughout the night I had the chance to talk with members about why they decided to buy their memberships. Let me just say that every single person I talked to was gushing with good things to say.

Tanya Fiol has been a member for five years and, to quote her directly, she said Membership Appreciation Night is “really awesome.”

For the Fiol family The Waterpark is the best part of their membership. She told me she is normallymemberappreciation3 at The Waterpark with her kids for at least two hours every day.

“The best thing is skipping the line at The Waterpark,” Tanya said. “One day we came on a Saturday and at least 100 people were lined up to get in. It stayed that way for probably two and a half hours!”

The Waterpark is a popular reason to get a membership, especially for families with kids. The Gambrel family only recently bought a membership, and The Waterpark was their reason for buying a membership as well.

Their son came to CCPR for adaptive swim lessons and they were so impressed with the facility they decided they needed to come out more often.

“The membership appreciation night is really nice,” Andrea Gambrel said. “All the activities, the free cabanas and it’s less crowded. It just feels more special!”

Baron Gambrel said The Waterpark is great because it’s something you can do with the whole family.


Of course, there are tons of other reasons to get memberships like access to the Fitness Center, Indoor
Aquatics, Gymnasium and Group Fitness classes, to name a few. If you’re interested in purchasing a membership (which you should be, because there are no downsides to a membership!) you can find them on our website!
