Splash Pad celebrating summer

  • Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Star File Photo Aarden Harper goes for a splash at the Summerfield Park splash pad last year. Riverview Park will hold its “Splash Pad” event on Friday, June 6.

School is out, the sun is blazing, and summer is officially underway. North Augusta Parks, Recreation and Leisure Services wants patrons to visit its splash pad to try and beat the heat.

The recreation department will be holding an event known as the “Splash Pad.” There will be plenty of water, food, and lots of fun on Friday, June 6, at Riverview Park, located at 100 Riverview Park Drive. Public Safety will bring its ladder truck out, and shoot water at kids of all ages.

Free hot dogs and drinks will be available, as well as a slip-n-slide which will be set up alongside the splash pad.

“It’s just a really cool event where we are able to celebrate that school is out for the kids in the North Augusta community,” Rick Meyer, director of North Augusta Parks and Recreation, said. “It’s another awesome way to bring the community together, and open up the summer.”

The event is led by the Adventure Camp Staff, and it will run all day from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and it is free of charge. It will be held in the open field directly across from the recreation facilities. Meyer says that this is an event any kid does not want to miss out on. Those who attend are urged to bring a bathing suit and towel.
