The opening of a new spot for kids to cool off in Warren was held Saturday morning.

City leaders held a ribbon-cutting for the new Packard Park Splash Pad.

The splash pad is located behind Packard Music Hall at 1703 Mahoning Avenue NW.

Kids will be able to use the spot to cool off all summer as the splash pad will remain open through Labor Day.

Daily hours for the splash pad are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Plans for the splash pad, the city's first, began nearly two-and-a-half years ago. It was supposed to open a year ago, but the opening was delayed due to pandemic restrictions.
