Memorial Day Weekend has long since served as the unofficial kick off to summer, and with the new season comes new adventures, especially of the outdoor variety.
With temperatures nearing 80 over the weekend, the splash pad at Big Bear Park was activated just in time for kids to get their feet wet and cool down from the summer sun. The Big Bear Splash Pad at Wesley’s playground will be open to the public throughout the summer months.
The splash pad is just one of the ways to cool down in Macon County this summer. The Macon County recreation park pool is slated to open on June 6, one week before Macon County schools are out for the summer. In Highlands, the new year-round pool is looking to open in the middle of June.
