SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Temperateness was oppressive in western Massachusetts Thursday and many tried to find ways to beat the heat which included a little fun in the sun.
Local municipalities have closed their public pools because of coronavirus safety guidelines so splash pads have been a huge hit!
The splash pad at Riverfront Park in Springfield was very busy Thursday. Many said they were glad to see a refreshing way to cool down.
“Just having some fun because it’s way too hot outside,” resident Yeneil Antio told 22News.
A few of Springfield’s splash pads are located at Forest Park, Kenefick Park, Magazine Park, and Hubbard Park.
