Bristol opens splash pad at Cummins Park


Posted on May 26, 2013 at 1:00 a.m.

BRISTOL — The town of Bristol’s new splash pad is on and ready for children to play in.

Although it was too chilly to wear bathing suits and run through it Saturday morning, May 25, the Bristol Park Board held a ribbon-cutting in Cummins Park to open the splash pad officially. Then they turned on the water.

“I really appreciate the hard work of the park department in putting this together,” said Bristol Town Council member Cathy Burke.

The splash pad is a 35- by 50-foot oval with water features for children of all ages. The water features include spray sticks, sprinklers, an arch and dump buckets. They are activated by stepping on a sensor.

The town purchased the splash pad from RecSource Aquatics at a cost of $99,000. Another $21,000 was spent for colorful benches, picnic tables and trash bins that were placed around the splash pad.

“I want to thank everyone who had a part in this, because it really was a group effort,” said park board President Linda Powell. “We started working on the splash pad three years ago by setting aside funds for it. It’s a great addition to Bristol.”

The splash pad will be on until Labor Day weekend. Cummins Park is located along the St. Joseph River behind the Elkhart County Historical Museum, 304 W. Vistula St. (S.R. 120).
