Splash pad a success in Ashburn

ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

The City of Ashburn has an attraction that brings visitors from all over Southwest Georgia.

The splash pad opened in April. Since Ashburn doesn't have a pool, the mayor thought a splash pad would be a great idea to bring some fun to the city.

The 2,700 square foot splash pad can hold 109 kids. He says the pad sees tons of families weekly.

"I talk with just about everybody that comes in. We've had people from Poulan, Cordele, and Tifton. So yeah, word gets out people come from miles around," said Mayor Jim Hedges.

"I was driving through Ashburn the other day and I saw it. I came over here to see it cause I never seen it before. I told him about it and I said let's go Sunday," said Melisa Sargent.

It's free to use the splash pad and it's open between the hours of 10 a.m. until 9 p.m., 7 days a week.
