Amarillo city officials conducted a Thompson Park Pool groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, north of Wonderland Park on East Chaparral Drive.

“It’s been truly a community-wide effort,” Mayor Ginger Nelson said. “It’s going to have lots of fun things, where families can come and gather – kids and grown-ups all across the age range. I really believe it will spur great development, so we’re very excited about the economic development opportunities.”
