Frankfort, a vibrant city nestled in the heart of Indiana, welcomed a magnificent addition to its community with the grand opening of Sapphire Bay, the Frankfort TPA Aquatics Center. This state-of-the-art water park, developed by Envoy in collaboration with HWC Engineering and RL Turner, officially opened its doors to the public on May 28, following an exciting ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 2.

The completion of Sapphire Bay is a significant milestone for the Frankfort community, as it marks the first pool facility since 2018.

At Sapphire Bay, visitors will find an array of exciting attractions to enjoy. The centerpiece of the water park is a lazy river, inviting guests to relax and unwind as they float along its gentle currents. Thrill-seekers can experience the adrenaline rush of three thrilling slides, while younger visitors can delight in their own dedicated kiddie pools, complete with a slide tailored just for them. The park also features water obstacles, fountains, renovated locker rooms, cabanas, and comfortable lounge chairs, ensuring a memorable experience for everyone who visits.

In addition to providing an exhilarating entertainment venue, Sapphire Bay aims to foster a strong sense of community. The aquatics center serves as a hub for social interaction, offering residents a place to connect, create lasting memories, and engage in healthy outdoor activities. By providing a space for families, friends, and neighbors to come together, Sapphire Bay reinforces the bonds that make Frankfort such a special place to live.

The collaboration between Envoy, HWC Engineering, and RL Turner has been instrumental in the successful realization of this remarkable project. With their combined expertise, these partners have transformed a vision into reality, creating a water park that exceeds expectations in both functionality and aesthetics. The renovated locker rooms, improved concessions areas, and comfortable cabanas enhance visitors' overall experience, making Sapphire Bay a destination that offers both fun and convenience.
