The Rotary Splash Pad will be closed for maintenance today and tomorrow for repairs. It will reopen at 9 am on Wednesday

The Splash Pad is a zero-depth water playground built in collaboration with the Rotary Clubs of Texarkana and the City of Texarkana, Texas Parks, and Recreation Department. The International Rotary Club, The Sunrise Rotary Club, the Oaklawn Rotary Club and the Wilbur Smith Rotary Club.

One of the features that gets the most attention from the kids is the pelican that dumps water from overhead. Its beak fills up and when it gets full the beak opens and dumps water on the kids below as seen in the photo above.

If you get a chance this summer make sure to take the kids to the Splash Pad. There are  plenty of benches for you to sit on and the Splash Pad is a great break from the heat.
