ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some kids in Albany found a way to cool off from the scorching temperatures.

Playing in the fountain at RiverFront Park downtown is a summer-time tradition.  There was a big crowd there Wednesday afternoon.

These kids played ring around the rosy.  Others just ran right through the water streams.

On a hot day, it's exactly where they wanted to be. Johnny Purvis came into town from Baconton.

Keisha Williams of Albany said, "I love it.  It's really really good that they have it here because it's so hot.  The kids need something like this.  It's fun and they interact."      

This was Keisha Williams' first trip to the play fountain, but she'll probably be back with her kids on another hot afternoon.
