The town of Owasco's new pickle ball courts and nature-themed splash park made their debut on Wednesday afternoon with the presence of the community.
Also the first day of Owasco's summer recreation programming, a handful of children joined with town officials, project donors, Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce representatives and residents as the town officially opened the splash park — billed as the first in the county — to the public.
"I'm really excited for (the splash pad)," Owasco Recreational Director Steve Simmons said. "It's going to bring a lot to the community."
Simmons, who's directed summer programs since 2007, said he's been excited for these additions, especially since they follow the addition of a fully accessible playground — also a first for the county — that opened last summer.
"It's great to have a playground where everyone, regardless of ability, can participate," Simmons said.
