Today, the Donetsk GMA* announced that the Aquasferra Waterpark in Donetsk will reopen soon, after an extended hiatus due to hostilities. A source said, “Thanks to efforts by DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko and Donetsk GMA Head Igor Martynov, Aquasferra Waterpark will reopen on Saturday, 29 August. You’ll be able to use some of your favourite attractions… swimming pools and beaches. The hours will be from 09.00 to 19.00. Unfortunately, due to the military situation prevailing in Donetsk, the hours open and facilities open could change. For more information, contact the waterpark directly”. The Aquasferra Waterpark opened 18 months before the start of the armed conflict in the Donbas, in December 2012. It’s a year-round facility, open both winter and summer. The dome is 85 metres in diameter and 24 metres high… it can open to expose the area to the outdoors. The building has 6 slides and children’s area and it’s in Shcherbakov Park. For security reasons, the DNR government closed it to the public on 2 July 2014.
