Water Fun Day at Tiger Paw Park

Our small community is very fortunate to have a beautiful park for families to enjoy. When the Township bought the park several years ago it had 3 base ball fields. With the help from some very community-minded folks several grants were written and awarded and the park now also has a very large playground with lots of fun things for the kids to climb on, swing on and twirl around on. There is also a very nice concession building with bathrooms. Three years ago the Township board began hosting children's activities for the months of June and July. Yesterday was Water Fun Day and about 35 kids participated in the activities. There were able to swim in a small pool, play on a slip and slide, run through several sprinklers, slide down a water slide and enjoy a water balloon toss. Snacks were also provided. Since we in a major heat wave right now the water part of the day was perfect timing.
