There's still a lot of summer ahead to celebrate and you can be sure that's exactly what kids (and adults) will be doing in Sparta with the splash pad that just opened today!

The splash pad opened today at 1pm. You can see below that it's a simple design, but that won't stop kids from cooling off and having a lot of fun.

More benches will be added in the future and possibly some more features.

The Village of Sparta said this on Facebook, "We understand that this splash pad would be cooler if there were additional toys, bigger, etc. We appreciate those comments and will work on implementing those into any future expansion if grant funds or funding is available. Hopefully this is a good first start to see if the community would support a larger pad if available."

Either way things are off to a good start as it sounds like many are enjoying the new splash pad on its first day.
