ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – Labor Day weekend means it's the end of the season for Splash Valley Water Park.
The outdoor aquatic facility is operated by Roanoke County's Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism.
The park had to close this weekend due to weather conditions, but Parks and Rec staff say overall, it was a successful summer.
"Our No. 1 goal is of course safety. But right after that it's giving customers a positive experience, and we think we've done that. This season, we saw just about 50,000 people through the gates here at Splash Valley," said Scott Ramsburg, with Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism.
The park has been ranked among the top five water parks in the Commonwealth. It will reopen around Memorial Day next year.
