Century Ribbon Cutting Officially Opens New Splash Pad

March 18, 2017

A ribbon cutting was held Friday morning for a new splash pad at Showalter Park in Century.

Despite temperatures in the 50’s, fifth graders from Byrneville Elementary School were on hand to be the first to try out the new splash pad, which was funded with a $50,000 Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program grant that was awarded to the town in October 2015.

“The kids will really enjoy this, and it will be good for Century,” Mayor Henry Hawkins said. “We got it open just in time for spring break next week.”

The town also installed a bathroom, and  is also installing two barbecue grills at pavilions near the splash pad.
