Beech Bend Park expansion on schedule

The leader of Bowling Green's Beech Bend Park said it is on schedule to complete an expansion in time for its opening in May. The expansion includes an amphitheater, three water park attractions and two rides, said Dallas Jones, the park's president and owner, in a statement.

The amphitheater will seat 400 and host musicals and magic and talent shows. The water park expansion includes a wave pool, lazy river and water play building called Tiki Island, according to the statement. The two new rides are a family tea cup offering that replaces a mini-tea cup ride and a "Star Ship" spinning ride, according to the statement.
