Summer fun times at the splash pad

A summer cool fun time had at the Fairgrounds Splash Pad by 1-year-old Carter Osburn. Many kids are taking advantage of the cool water spraying during the hot summer day heating temperatures. Parents sit under a shaded covered pavilion close by the splash pad. Hours of the two splash pads are from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. There are two splash pads located in Eunice, one at the Amy neighborhood center area, behind Central Middle School; and another at the Fairgrounds nearby the tennis courts.
