Rotary Splash Pad At Spring Lake Park to Open June 1
The Texarkana Parks and Recreation Department says that the Splash Pad in Spring Lake Park will open on June 1.
The Splash Pad will stay open daily from 9 AM until 7 PM daily until the end of Summer. The Splash Pad has 6 additional shade ports and picnic tables that have been added. And a brand new non-slip surface. The reason for the delay in opening is that they are awaiting some parts for the splash pad and wanted to make sure it would be able to stay open with no interruptions.
There will also be an added fence to the Splash Pad. It will have two gates, one with the City Of Texarkana Logo and the other with the Rotary logo. The city will also offer the Splash Pad to be rented out after hours.
The Splash Pad is a zero-depth water playground built in collaboration between the Rotary Clubs of Texarkana and the City of Texarkana, Texas Parks, and Recreation Department.

One of the features that get 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.
