Just in case your skin feels like it’s melting during these scorching summer days, there’s a new Splash Park in Glen Oaks where you and the kids can cool down.
The Glen Oaks Village Board of Directors unveiled its fun-filled Splash Park on Saturday, July 30 at 11:30 a.m. The park is located next to Playground 3, which can be accessed by entering the driveway at 260-23 73rd Ave. or the entrance at 260-24 Langston Ave.
The grand opening event was a smashing success with over 250 guests in attendance, according to the Glen Oaks Village Co-Op Facebook page. Families with kids received free Good Humor ice cream treats and Kona shaved ice from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The children also enjoyed slipping and sliding on free inflatable slides from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Guests who attended the Splash Park grand opening event expressed their satisfaction with the day’s festivities on Facebook.
“The children really had a good time. Glen Oaks did a good job,” said Grace Schafer.
“They out did themselves. Everything was wonderfully done,” Barb Plymale commented on the July 30 post.
Kids can escape the stifling heat this summer by visiting the Splash Park every day from 9 a.m. until sunset.
