The Gore Splash Pad opened July 7, and "It's been a splash in the community," Gore Town Administrator Horace Lindley said. The $120,000 splash pad was built with the help of a $100.000 donation from the Cherokee Nation.
Lindley said the splash pad is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week and its use is free to the public. The facility is open to all area residents, not just Gore residents. Lindley said the public is enjoying the new 2,500-foot facility.
"It's been wonderful," he said about the splash pad's daily use. "It's constant. It's really a great asset to our town."
He said the design of the pad includes features for both small children and teens. "It's sized up to the larger kids," Lindley said.
Lindley invited everyone to visit and have a picnic in the park
