Century’s Splash Pad Opening Delayed By Valve Problem

September 13, 2016

One week ago, we reported that Century’s new splash pad was installed, but not yet officially opened.

The splash pad had been operational at times, but Century Mayor Freddie McCall said Monday that it now turned off awaiting the installation of a new part, which could happen as early as Friday. Once it’s up and running, a grand opening and official hours will be announced.

A $50,000 Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program grant was awarded to the town last October to fund the splash pad. The competitive grant program provides state funds to develop lands for public outdoor recreational use, such as building or renovating sports facilities or playgrounds. Century was the only recipient of the grant last year in Escambia County.
