If buying your very own water park is on your bucket list, a city in Illinois has a very special opportunity for you.

What Would You Buy If You Won The Illinois Lottery

I always joke about the things I would buy if I won a big jackpot in the Illinois lottery. One of those things would be a lazy river to run throughout my backyard. That's my favorite part about going to a water park. I could ride on those tubes all day long.

I guess if I won a huge amount of money, I should probably go all in with my bucket list item and buy my very own water park. That way I've got the whole experience. If that's a dream of yours, there's a very unique opportunity right now in Illinois.

Water Park For Sale In Illinois

The once popular water park, Splash Station in Joilet is currently for sale. If you're not familiar with the place, it was an outdoor water park with a railroad theme. It featured a 6-person racing slide, body slides, tube slides, a lazy river, and a zero-depth pool. I would consider it a typical city-owned water park in Illinois.

The residents seemed to enjoy it. I found a review of the water park.

According to Tripadvisor,

Great place to cool off in summer. Something for everyone. Kids pool, adult pool, water slides, lazy river & sand for kids to play & build sand castles.

According to patch.com,

The Joliet Park District said it is using Coldwell Banker with hopes of completing a property sale in 2024.


The property along the Route 6 corridor mostly consists of industrial and distribution centers.
