Moore County residents now have a new way to keep cool this summer.  The Village of Pinehurst had a grand opening for the newest amenity at Rassie Wicker Park:  a 2,500 square-foot, zero-depth splash pad that is the first of its kind in Moore County.  The splash pad has multiple water features, including floor geysers, a big bucket water dump, and rain shower curtain.  Park goers can also enjoy an inflatable double lane slip n' slide and a rip curl water slide.  

Pinehurst Splash PadThere is no admission cost for the splash pad.  Food and beverages are available for purchase at the concession stand, as well as beverages from Kona Ice.

“We’re a military family and we’ve been places that aren’t family friendly and aren’t always trying to do things for the community. This lets the community know that Pinehurst has a love for family and they want to share that," said participant Ana Kramer.

Beginning June 22, the Splash Pad will be open from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. daily through Labor Day weekend.
