The city’s new splash park also will open Saturday.
At the splash park, water is sprayed from colorful structures and ground sprays and then drained away before it can accumulate. It is activated by touching one of the two green poles located on the east or west ends of the splash park or moving one of the spray cannons.  
The splash park is at Springlake Park, which is west of Old Main in the Springlake Housing Addition, southwest of Wal-mart.
