St. Charles Parish's first splash park will open on Tuesday
The first splash park in St. Charles Parish will open on Tuesday, June 24 with the unveiling of the redesigned community park in Destrehan.

The park’s renovation costs more than $1 million and has been underway since October. Along with the splash park, which will be free to use, the field has been completely redesigned with two baseball/softball fields, a football field, batting cages, upgraded playground equipment and new pavilions.

A centralized pavilion will also cover a concession stand that will include bathrooms and storage areas. A fence will be constructed along the border of the park for safety.

The splash park will be the only public facility in the parish that parents can visit with their children to cool off during the summer months. The padding of the park will be motion-activated so that water will not be wasted.

The park is located at 1901 Ormond Boulevard in Destrehan.
