Ground Broken for Pool at Yogi Park
Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Pine Lakes near Pittsfield, Ill., is getting some new additions, WGEM-TV, Quincy, reported.
Construction has begun on a new pool and recreation center at this campground. The pool will be 30 feet by 70 feet and will have a concrete deck surrounding it. Construction on the pool started last week and they hope to be done by November.
Owners of the park are Ted and Deb Festa.
“We took over ownership of Pine Lakes in 2007,” said Deb Festa. “And Ted and myself have been planning this since then. And it’s finally, finally happening. And yes we’ve been talking about it for four years and it’s finally coming to completion. We’re really excited.”
The new recreation center will have a snack bar, laundry room, arcade and a meeting room.
