Please be aware this is the time of year for white-tailed deer to give birth and fawns may be found alone on areas of the installation. It is important to know that if a fawn is found to leave it alone. Many people think when they find a young fawn hiding in the vegetation it has been abandoned; this is far from the truth. Young fawns survive by having very little scent and hiding very still in cover to evade predators. The doe will leave the fawn alone for extended periods returning periodically to nurse.

If a person sees a fawn hiding (often you can walk right up to it) they should leave the area and do not disturb the animal in any way. Aside from potentially causing the mother to abandon the fawn, it is illegal to possess or harass all species of wildlife without a permit, and potentially dangerous. If a fawn is picked up it must be cared for in captivity and only licensed wildlife rehab centers are authorized to possess wildlife. Rearing a wild animal in captivity is very time and cost intensive.

Please do wildlife a favor and do not try to "help" the young of any species. Nature and the natural parents are much better at caring for wild offspring than humans are.

The Fort Knox Water Park, located at 5539 Chaffee Avenue, will be closed for the 2018 summer season, while a severe leak is repaired. The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR) and the Directorate of Public Works (DPW) identified the leak in February, and engaged the Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE), to explore corrective options. Based on their recommendations, the Water Park will remain closed this summer while extensive repairs are completed.

While the Water Park is being repaired, Anderson Aquatics Center, located on Fort Knox at 7962 Wilson Road will be available for recreational swimming. The Anderson Aquatics Center is home to an indoor, heated, Olympic-sized pool, diving board, 50-foot tube water slide, rock wall and indoor spray park. It also includes Splash Town Outdoor Spray Park, Tiki Hut Snack Bar and a patio with ample space for snacking and sunbathing. Anderson Aquatics Center also has a private party room and fitness center. This summer, starting Memorial Day weekend, the outdoor amenities at Anderson Aquatics Center will open early at 11 a.m. daily, to accommodate more time to enjoy the warm weather and the indoor features will open at 1 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. on weekends and holidays. Three- and 12-month passes are available, or Families can purchase 10-visit punch cards or daily admission passes. Visit Anderson Aquatics Center for details and updates.
