Here’s Why the Buzzards Bay Splash Pad Isn’t Open Yet
It may not be summer quite yet, if we're getting technical, but we've been sitting at summer-like temperatures here on the SouthCoast for a few weeks now.
If you've been itching to escape the heat and help the kids cool down, you may have been thinking of making a trip out to the Buzzards Bay splash pad. Although the neighboring playground, also operated by the Bourne Department of Public Works, opened last week, the splash pad has remained closed and waterless. Why?
In a message from the Bourne Department of Public Works, a representative said the department is just waiting on one key piece of equipment to get the park's water area reopened.
"We’re hoping that the new control panel will be in at the beginning of next week," the representative wrote. "But, to answer your question, yes [the splash pad] will definitely be open very soon."
It sounds like if all goes well, the splash pad will hopefully be open to the public for plenty of summer fun sometime in the next couple weeks. We may not have a specific date to look forward to right this second, but we sure are looking forward to it!
The splash pad is located at 90 Main Street in Buzzards Bay and opened for its first season just in time for Memorial Day weekend in 2018. Buttons on either side of the splash pad control activate a variety of features within the area, so something different is always happening around the park.
