WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — Families were able to beat the heat on Saturday in part of Wilkes-Barre.
The Splash Pad at Coal Street Park is now open for the season.
Newswatch 16 found flag football players cooling off in the water after their weekly game.
Families can splash around for free.
"It's really great because a lot of kids are not fortunate enough to have their own pool, and we don't really have a community pool around here, so this is a nice little play area for them and on top of being all sweaty from the game. What's better than a win and a splash time," said Ashlee Romiski of Wilkes-Barre.
The Splash Pad is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Wilkes-Barre.
