AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - More rain has meant more delays for finishing Amarillo’s Thompson Park water park.

Deputy City Manager Kevin Starbuck said today there have been almost forty days of weather delays during the construction.

First this winter’s snow then the recent thunderstorms have kept things wet. The grand opening might be on the fourth of July. But the park could open just before that.

The city is also still looking for lifeguards and is continuing to recruit people fifteen years old and older with an interest in working outside.
