CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE) — The city of Cranston has a new splash pad just in time for the hottest predicted weather of the summer.

“We are pleased to offer this new, fun and safe way for families to cool down and on a hot summer day,” Mayor Ken Hopkins said. “This new resource will be an oasis for families in Ward 3, and all of Cranston, as we continue through the summer heat. I cannot wait to see the many smiling faces of our youth splashing around.”

Hopkins said grant support funded the project.

The splash pad is off of Oak Street by the Cooney Playground and Hugh B. Bain Middle School.

It will be open from about 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Hopkins said the hours may be adjusted.
