Ah, summertime in East Texas. It's intense right about now, so any opportunities and.or venues for cooling off in this crazy heat are most welcome. If you have kids, then you may have enjoyed taking them to splash about in the water feature at the Eastern end of Bergfeld Park. When it closed for renovations, many a parent bemoaned the disappointed emoting from their kids.

Thankfully though, time manages to go by and now we can celebrate the grand opening of the "Splasher" splash pad water feature! I'm so excited for the kiddos. Even as an adult, just driving by and seeing the water feature and the happy kids during the summer almost helps me feel a bit cooler, too. Almost.

All are invited to attend the grand opening at Bergfeld Park, Tuesday evening, July 23 at 6:30 p.m. There will a quick ribbon cutting ceremony after which there will plenty of fun to be had in the park.
