Hershey, Pa., is known as the sweetest place on earth, thanks to its status as the home of chocolate giant The Hershey Company. So when the time came to replace the 40-year-old indoor and outdoor pools at Hershey Lodge — a 665-room resort and convention center located near the Hersheypark® theme park — the facility’s leadership opted to embrace a tasty motif.

The colorful result is Hershey’s Water Works at Hershey Lodge, a $13 million, 30,000-square-foot complex that opened in 2016 and can accommodate almost 800 guests at any given time. Highlights include a 3,000-square-foot leisure pool with sprays, floatables and lily pad walks that look like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups; a 1,300-square-foot children’s pool with geysers and interactive sprays; slides designed to look like Twizzlers Twists; a 1,500-square-foot indoor splash pad with a themed lighthouse play structure; two basketball hoops; a 245-square-foot whirlpool; a 700-square-foot outdoor splash pad; and the indoor Cocoa Cabana dining area. The facility features Pentair pumps, lighting and other equipment that help keep it operating efficiently all year long.
