GERING — After 30 years of fun, the Gering pool has retired “Big Blue” and is building a new water slide.
“Big Blue,” the loving title for the Gering pool’s old slide, was first put up in 1987 and community members of all ages have been enjoying it ever since. Gering’s Director of Parks/Recreation and Leisure Services, Ron Ernst said the city began to realize the slide was getting to the end of it’s life.
