On Saturday My son and I had a chance to check out the splash pad and the completed pad is way cooler than the original plan, and as you can see is a great place for the kids on these hot days.

The one feature that got the most attention is a Pelican that dumps water on the kids. Its beak fills up with water and when it gets full the beak opens and dumps the water on the kids below.

In this photo you can see the boys waiting on the pelican the water on them.

If you get a chance this summer make sure to take the kids to the splash pad. Their is plenty of parking and benches for you to sit on. And with the expansion of the concrete surface this week it will be a perfect place for a little break from the heat.
