Laughter rang out across English Park in Altavista on Sunday afternoon as the new Splash Pad and renovated playground opened this week for a limited run since it’s so near the end of the season.
However, the Town of Altavista wanted youngsters to enjoy the Splash Pad all they could especially in the hot, dry weather the area is experiencing.
Last week the town announced that the Splash Pad will operate daily between the hours of 10:00 am. to 7:00 p.m. during the month of September, unless it’s closed due to weather.
