Eden’s new Freedom Park Splash Pad has drawn about 300 soak seekers daily since it opened June 26.
Tots and teens alike, squealed and giggled on a recent afternoon, waiting to be doused. Other kids weaved through plumes of cool water across the brightly colored 5,000-square-foot “sprayground.’’
The $800,000 project, with concession stand and bathhouse, is positioned near the park’s playground and dog parks.
Open noon to 6 p.m. daily, the splash park also offers the grounds for private evening party rentals.
Admission is $2 for residents and non-residents, free for children 4 and under and free for seniors 55 and over.
