The Rotary Splash Pad at Spring Lake Park will be closing for the season on Ocotberber 3.

The Texarkana Parks department had this to say about the Splash Pad:

The Splash Pad hours will be from 9-5 daily with Sunday, October 3rd being the last day of the season.

The Splash Pad is a great place for kids to enjoy during the hot days of Summer. This is what the Splash Pad is all about:

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.

This year some new features have been added as well as a new fence around the entire 'Splash Pad'. The city also offers the 'Splash Pad'. to be rented out after hours.

The Pelican that dumps water on everyone underneath always gets a lot of laughter from the kids. Its beak fills up with water and when it gets full the beak opens and dumps the water on the kids below.

As the season draws to an end, the photos of fun will carry us through the cold months of Winter. You still have a couple of weeks left to hang out at the splash pad. There is plenty of parking and benches for you to sit on.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
