CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – Parks and splash pads are open in Jackson County. Not a moment too soon with this summer heat wave.
Tuesday at the splash pad in Don Jones Memorial Park in Central Point, kids of all ages were enjoying the summer fun. Even parents Nichole Davis and April Deagle were enjoying themselves.
“They love coming here and playing in the water it’s their favorite thing. They’d come everyday if they could,” said Nichole Davis.
Davis and Deagle have known each other for 4 years. Their kids enjoy playing together, especially when school is out.
“They’d play with the hose outside if they could while we drink wine,” said April Deagle.
The Central Point neighbors told NBC5 News that taking their little ones to the splash pad is easy for them and fun for the kids.
