As temperatures reached well into the 90s on Friday, there was no shortage of water to cool off in at Riverside Park's Sprayground.
The 1,900 square foot splash pad encompasses many different water features including spraying frogs and buckets of dumping water, making a multitude of ways to beat the heat.
Originally opened for the first time in 2013, the splashpad operates annually in the summer months with the water flowing from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. The sprayground reopened in May 2021 following a closure caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
More information about the sprayground, Riverside Park and other ways to stay cool this summer can be found on Lynchburg Parks and Recreation's website.
