The Texarkana Parks and Recreation Department announced that the Rotary Splash Pad in Spring Lake Park will open on June 6.
The Splash Pad will stay open daily from 9 AM until 7 PM daily until the end of Summer. Robbie Robertson of the Texarkana Texas Parks and Recreations department had this to say about the PSlash Pad opening:
They are working on repainting the surface of the splash pad so we can be ready for a great Summer. We are also looking for folks to come work for the Texarkana Parks and Recreation Department.

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.
