Splash park soon to make a splash in Sylvester

Splash park soon to make a splash in Sylvester

What once was just a mere blue print for the Splash Pad in Sylvester  is coming to life.

"We're very excited"

The city expects to open the Splash Pad on Kelly Street on July 26th.

There has already been a lot of talk about the park on the city's main street Facebook page. 

"We've seen a lot of  good comments on Facebook about it. And I think our community is really interested and excited when it's opening."

The city hopes that when it opens, surrounding business will benefit from the splash pad. 

"Well if they come here to the splash park well naturally they'll need something to eat something to drink"

Debbie Bridges hopes more than just the local restaurants will benefit. 

"And maybe will go shopping as well." 

Each detail in the Splash pad represents the Sylvester in some way.

"It's reflective of our community activities"

The train featured in the splash pad, represents the Icon Train you see from Highway 82. 

The splash pad also has a tractor to represent the farming community.

"The pad is actually in the shape of a peanut, which our community is the largest  growing community of peanuts."

Bridges says they've been planning the splash pad for some time and leaders are excited to see things coming along.
