[ARCHIVED] 09/02/16 Officials cut ribbon at Steele Creek Park Splash Pad

Officials from the City of Bristol, Tennessee and representatives of the Junior League of Bristol held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new splash pad at Steele Creek Park. With nearly 3 weeks remaining until the official end of summer, and with warmer weather likely to continue into next month, area families will have ample opportunity to enjoy the latest attraction at the City’s largest park.

“We’re always glad to be able to offer something new and unique for our community to enjoy, and the splash pad is unlike anything we’ve ever had in Bristol,” said Terry Napier, Director of the Bristol, Tennessee Parks and Recreation Department. “Not only did the Junior League spark that idea, but their efforts are what ultimately made this project possible,” he added.

Families are invited to enjoy the splash pad during regular park hours from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, 7 days a week. The splash pad is a “zero-depth” recreation area and has little or no standing water, so no lifeguards or attendants will be present. There is no charge to use the splash pad other than the $2 park entry fee.
