All kids on deck: New park makes a splash

Children play in the cool water of the new splash park, Shipwreck Shores, at Windjammer Park on a sunny Monday afternoon, July 8. The new park proved popular with children and parents alike.

Owen Morton, 10, thought the splash park “is pretty cool.” He stands here on the “shipwrecked” pirate ship.
