Fitchburg's Splash Pad turns one year old today

Posted: Updated:
FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- In Fitchburg people were getting cooled off from the warm weather.

The Splash Pad at McKee Farm Park celebrated its first birthday Saturday.

The celebration included birthday cake and of course some fun in the sun.

The Fitchburg Optimist's Club says it took several year for the Splash Pad to become a reality.

"I always thought the city needed some kind of aquatic facility. It took years to get that ball rolling and get funding and donors, it opened up last summer," said members Joan Mohr and Jake Johnson.

The Optimists club is an organization that focuses on getting kids involved in the community.
