Officials eye opening of parish splash park

Each year as the temperature climbs outside interest in water-related activities inevitably rises as well. And while in past years the Ormond Splash Park has opened in May, damage from Hurricane Ida will delay that early of a start this year.

“Like most of our parks, the Ormond Splash Park received significant damage from Hurricane Ida,” St. Charles Parish communications director Samantha de Castro said. “The recreation team has been working tirelessly to make repairs to all parks, including the Ormond Splash Park, to ensure the safety of our residents.”

The Ormond Splash Park is part of Ormond Community Park, which is located at 1901 Ormond Boulevard in Destrehan. Amenities of the park include multi-purpose fields, playground equipment, the spray park and a walking track.

“We hope to have the park ready for opening at the beginning of June,” de Castro added.

Other St. Charles Parish Parks and Recreation facilities that remain closed since Hurricane Ida include the Ama Grain Field, the American Legion Field in Des Allemands, Norco’s Bethune Park and Paradis Park.
