WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – A state investment incentive program could help Williamsburg do more with less to expand the popular Kentucky Splash Water Park.

The city has applied for a $2.5 million new market tax credit as part of its effort to expand the water park’s campground, add a splash pad and build two softball fields, Mayor Roddy Harrison told the Williamsburg City Council this week, according to the News Journal.

The city recently sold $8 million in revenue bonds to fund the expansion but because of increased construction costs, had to scale back plans for a $1.3 million pool. The tax credits could offset that, helping the city complete the full expansion.

The city will delay some of the work while the tax credit application is being completed.
