Simply Thai is the culinary creation of Matt and Vonne, a brother and sister team who trace their love of food and hospitality to their Laotian mother, Chan. A woman ahead of her time, Chan became a local sensation in Visalia, California in the 1980s, serving delectable Southeast Asian specialties from what we would now call a food truck. All these years later, Chan is still remembered fondly as the “Food Van Lady” by loyal patrons who grew up on her cooking.

Phase one includes an exciting renovation of the pool area - adding a lazy river, play features and new slides, replacing outdated mechanical systems, as well as remodeling locker rooms and the concessions area. Accessibility will be improved by adding more handicapped parking, widening sidewalks and improving the entryway into the pool. Other phase one projects include reconstructing the old gymnasium into a meeting center and offices, realigning the Great Lawn and stage area and adding a bridge across the lake to connect High Point City Lake Park to the Piedmont Environmental Center, High Point Greenway and the Bicentennial Greenway. We expect this project to be completed prior to the summer of 2022. High Point City Lake Park is one of the oldest and most visited parks in the High Point park system. This much needed update to the park and pool will ensure this well-loved icon is around for future generations to enjoy!
