City officials in Hartford opened a splash park at the 7th Street Park in the summer of 2012, just in time for the extended heat wave. Now, there's a pavilion to compliment the facility, which has been seeing added traffic ever since its opening, according to the village's Deanna Barnes.
The splash park is open to everyone, not just Hartford residents. She says this is a great example of what can happen when people work together. The splash park should open up around Memorial Day weekend, according to Barnes.
