“We actually started this project early summer,” said Hollar.

“We ran into a few issues with the site and the grounds around the site, so it had to be paused. They got concrete poured about a month and a half ago. And then we came out here to finish it, wrap it up and get it ready for the start of the season.”

Splash pads have become a popular recreational feature — for cities throughout the southeast.
