Athens Splash-Pad to hold Ribbon Cutting, water play

ATHENS, August 21, 2013—Although the Splash-Pad in Athens is now complete, current city water restrictions have forced the facility to remain inactive.

The Splash-Pad, located in Kiwanis Park, uses over 30,000 gallons of water each day at maximum capacity. With the city of Athens currently in Stage 1 of the Drought Contingency Plan, Kiwanis officials have elected to turn the facility off until water levels rise and water restrictions are lifted.

However, Athens residents are invited to a one-day-only event as the Splash-Pad flows in celebration of its Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening.

The event will be held on Thursday, August 22. The Ribbon Cutting will take place at 2:30 p.m., and the water will be turned on from 3:00 – 8:00 p.m. Refreshments will also be served.

The Grand Opening event will also be the last opportunity to purchase personalized bricks. Bricks are $50.00 each.

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with Kim Hodges about the event. Click below for all the details.
