The Garberville Benbow RV Park through the assistance of Redwood Capital Bank has embarked upon major renovations of its facilities. On Thursday August 29th at 10 am the ribbon cutting of their new Splash Park took place at the pool area.
“The opening is just the first part of a major improvement project for Benbow RV”, stated John Porter, Managing Partner. “This is an addition to the entire pool area doubling the size and adding another feature to the existing pool and Jacuzzi. New pool furniture and upgrades in the pool restrooms will also be part of the overall project.”
“We chose Splash Zone headquartered in Arizona for the installation. Splash Parks are the only thing this company does”, said Mark McGowan, General Manager. McGowan oversaw the entire installation including the site preparation, pad, fencing, integration with existing pool and deck areas. “It was a team effort with Splash Zone, three local contractors and our own maintenance staff, which I am especially proud of, to get the project completed,” McGowan said. The Benbow Splash Park is the only such facility in all of Humboldt County and gives the Benbow RV guests a feature not available at any other RV facility on the north coast. This is the first of what will be several new recreational facilities added or improved upon at the RV Park. A new “Sport Court” and children’s play area are currently under construction and will open later this fall.
Shirley Petro, Operations Manager of the RV Park, stated, “We are going to open our Splash Park/Pool area up to a daily fee and possibly seasonal passes for local residents. Petro was hired several months ago and has over 12 years of experience in managing large RV Parks. “Since we have doubled the size of the Pool area with the addition of the Splash Park we have the space which will allow others to enjoy this one of a kind facility in Humboldt County”, Petro stated.
