It's been another fun, wet season but the splashing good times are almost over for 2016 at the Rotary Splash Pad in Spring Lake Park.

This Sunday, October 2, is the last day to enjoy the Rotary Splash Pad this year as the Texarkana, Texas Parks Department will shut off the water for the year at dusk.

That's the sad news. The good news is the Rotary Clubs of Texarkana have raised enough funds to add another shade port during the winter break.

"Plans are to eventually have six shade ports but they have the funding now to add the fifth during the off season," said Rotarian Andi Darby. Eventually there are plans for a fence to be added as well, that will "enable private parties to be conducted there during summer evening hours," she added.

So even though this weekend is going to be a bit cooler, enjoy the Rotary Splash Pad one more time.
