Galion’s splash park opens Friday


GALION — City residents will have a new place to chill starting this weekend.

The long-awaited splash park facility at East Park opens at noon Friday.

Matt Echelberry, Galion’s communications director, announced the opening date Wednesday afternoon.

The pre-fab bathroom facilities arrived at the park last week, and getting the plumbing ready to go for the bathrooms was one of the last steps.

There won’t be a big drawn-out ceremony Friday.

But the much-anticipated fun park will officially open to the public, just in time for another hot, humid, sultry, summer weekend.

Area residents are encouraged to pack up the kids and come on over to the new park.
