Making a ‘splash’ in Grove City

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle
Though dark skies cast a shadow, not even the threat of rain and thunderstorms could alter the charge of excitement in the air as families in the Grove City area came out to Fryer Park on May 19 to experience the grand opening of the much-anticipated Splash Pad. Through a collaborative effort with the city’s parks and recreation department and the Grove City YMCA, the Splash Pad offers a water park experience with slides, spray shooters and surprise spouts for all to enjoy during the summer season. While admission is free, the Splash Pad is open for the public to use from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Labor Day on school days not in session. Here, Representatives with the city of Grove City, the Splash Pad committee and the Grove City YMCA prepare to cut the ribbon during the grand opening.
