Splash pad opens at Yellville City Park

The Twin Lakes Area's new option for summer entertainment is now open for business. Construction at Yellville City Park has been completed, and the new splash pad became available Friday at 9 a.m.

Yellville Parks Director Lyn Baker says residents and tourists alike are thrilled the pad was able to open on schedule.

The cost of the project was over $300,000. Half of the cost was provided by Arkansas Parks and Tourism through a 50/50 rural community grant, and the other half was provided by generous donors.

Baker says the splash pad is open to the public free of charge.

While there was no grand opening for the pad, there may be a grand closing near the end of the season. Baker says the season will run through the weekend after Labor Day.
