ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Chehaw Park has a new way for you to cool down this summer.

The new splash park is set to open just in time to beat the heat.

Plans for the park were announced back in February. Crews are out there now and construction is already underway. 

"We're hoping for a summer open, that way we can get kids in the cool water and keep them out here during the hottest part of the summer," said Morgan Burnette, the Director of Guest and Public Relations at Chehaw Park. 

The park will be a splash pad. It will have water cannons, buckets and other toys for kids. 

The park is on target with its original budget of $250,000, but Chehaw Park is still taking donations to upgrade some parts of the splash pad. 

The splash park will be right outside of the playground in Chehaw Park.
