Springville Splash Pad

This is my second post in  one day!  So make sure you scroll down and read the other one too!  : )

So of course, a month or two after we move away from Springville, they open this awesome splash pad that they have been building over the last year or so.  We got to visit it a few times whenever we took Sadie to dance class or went down for something for the duplex, but I'm still bummed that this wasn't here the last five years we lived there!  It is within walking distance of where we lived and just awesome.  (can you tell i'm a bit jealous of all my Springville friends?!) 

Anyway, here are some pictures of when the kids and I have gone.

 There is a long river with water about 2 to 3 inches deep.  It is perfect for young kids like Emery, but still fun for the older kids because there are water sprayer things all along it.

 It is right next to the fire station, which is pretty cool.  The kids love to look at the firetrucks.

 Cuddling up in their towels after playing in the water.

 This waterfall is at the front of the river.  

 More water sprayers.

 Emery was just in heaven.  Her eyes lit up every time the water started spraying.  Now every time she sees her swim suit, she picks it up and yells "SPLASH PAD!!!"  ha ha

 Then there is this section at the end of the river that is just a splash pad coming out of the cement.  

 Zac loves this part.

So anyway, if you live in Springville, you should definitely check it out and put it to good use!  We would be there pretty much everyday this summer if we lived there.  ha ha.

Looks way too fun! Hope you can find one close to your new place.

Wait... is the splash pad behind where the old library was? (By the park that's back there?) Or on the front grass of the old library?
