There were lots of smiling faces at Clinch Park on Saturday afternoon because after nearly two months of being closed, the splash pad was back up and running!
The Grand Traverse County Health Department gave it a final inspection on Friday, and gave the thumbs up. Officials say it was the last of the permitting requirements to be in compliance to operate the waterscape. The splash pad has been closed for most of the summer due to sewage getting into the water.
Kids of all ages couldn't seem contain their excitement on Saturday while cooling down from the hot sun in the water playground.
Officials say it will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Labor Day weekend.
