Quotes from the episode:

"The Beach is awesome in that it starts at a zero depth, so little ones can walk right in and be comfortable in the shallow end, and then for older kids and adults who want to be more adventurous, we have the deep end, where it's 15 feet." - Jackie Gonzalez, Aquatic Manager

"One of the things that visitors enjoy about the Riverwalk Cafe is the setting. You have the Naperville Riverwalk, overlooking the Paddleboat Quarry, and visitors can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the summer weather and a variety of refreshments." - Brad Wilson, Director of Recreation
