Alison Arnold, General Manager


Hi, my name is Alison Arnold. I am originally from Iowa. I participated in several sports growing up, but soccer was my passion which lead me to college with scholarships. I attended Iowa Central Community College where I graduated in 2014 with my Associates of Arts Degree, with an emphasis in Criminal Justice. I transferred to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I graduated in December of 2017 receiving my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Psychology. I grew up going to my city’s water park every summer, because it was my favorite place to be. As soon as I turned 16 I applied to work at the city’s water park and worked my up from concessions to lifeguard to swim instructor and continued working there from 2010-2017. I am excited to become a part of SafeSplash in my General Manager position here at the Parker and Arapahoe location starting in 2018 and look forward to meeting you all.
