OIPSummer made a splash in Fayetteville on Tuesday morning when the city’s newest splash pad opened with a ribbon-cutting.
The splash pad is outside Lake Rim Recreation Center at 1455 Hoke Loop Road. City Council members joined members of the Kiwanis Club of Cape Fear and Fayetteville- Cumberland Parks & Recreation summer camp participants to cut the ribbon, according to a city
news release.

The Kiwanis Club donated $20,000 to build the splash pad, which is zero-depth entry and uses recycled water, the news release said. This is one of 12 public splash pads throughout Fayetteville and Cumberland County. Access is free. Hours and contact information are posted online. The splash pad is one of several recreation additions in west Fayetteville, the news release said. About four miles from the pad, the Bill Crisp Senior Center is under construction beside
Lake Rim. It is scheduled to open later this summer.

Other recreation projects underway in the city include the expansion of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, a new tennis center at Mazarick Park, and Mable C. Smith Park, according to the release.
