PIGEON FORGE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Like a favorite secret swimming hole nestled in the Smoky Mountains, the outdoor pool at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort is taking shape. Released today, new renderings reveal the resort’s outdoor pool fits right in with its already beautiful natural surroundings. The nearly 4,000 square foot pool meanders through a lushly-landscaped pool deck and provides families with a refreshing retreat.
On one end of the resort pool, water cascades from a gentle waterfall just outside the lobby’s three-story windows. On the other end, the zero-entry swimming pool allows families to wade right in as the entry gradually slopes from the deck into the water, just like a natural pond or lake. Meanwhile, a second waterfall featuring a “lazy stream” offers swimmers another alcove to splash and dip. Resort guests can paddle, float or play in depths up to five feet.
In addition to the pool, there’s an interactive family splash pad for more water play. And even details like the pool patio are not forgotten—while sunbathers can soak in rays, landscaping also provides shady spots throughout the area so the experience is enjoyable for everyone.
Opening summer 2015, Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort is the ultimate Smoky Mountain vacation destination. Surrounded by the beauty of nature, but just minutes away from Dollywood’s award-winning theme parks, DreamMore Resort is inspired by Dolly Parton’s warm childhood memories of growing up in the Great Smoky Mountains, and on her family’s front porch. Here, families can trade in the distractions of daily life to share stories, celebrate memories, and create new ones. Resort guests will receive exclusive park privileges like door-to-door shuttle service to Dollywood parks. Plus, with premium amenities like indoor and outdoor pools, landscaped gardens, and a sit-down restaurant, salon and spa, there’s something fun for every member of the family.
