Splish Splash! Having fun in the sun!
The splash pad at the Harper McCaughan Town Green reopened on May 1, and local kids, their family and friends wasted no time jumping in on the fun.
On Saturday, May 7, cousins 11-year-old Gauge Penton and 4-year-old Maverick Burgess took a ride with their uncle all the way from Picayune just to check out the Long Beach splash pad, a trip apparently well worth taking. About a dozen Long Beach kids and their parents were also basking in the sun and splash pad spouts midday Saturday.
The splash pad is located behind the Harper McCaughan Town Green pavilion, located at 301 Jeff Davis Avenue, off East 3rd Street, and is part of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department, offering children in the area - and beyond - a fun safe place to play in the water and bask in the sun. Like all of the City’s parks, the splash pad is open sunrise to sundown seven days a week. The Long Beach splash pad is scheduled to stay open until October 1.
