The splash pad in Chadwicks, which offers kids a little respite from the summer heat, has set its opening day for 2018.

You can find the Chadwicks Splash Pad in Donovan Memorial Park - it's off of Elm Street. Its also not very far from the Ice Cream Factory - if you combine the two - you have a perfect summer day.

The park is officially scheduled to open July 1 - but the park has been known to open a little earlier if temperatures begin to really climb. 

You can get more details about the park at The Town of New Hartford Parks & Recreation Department's Facebook page, and at the town's website,

The park sits adjacent to the Sauquoit Creek, and even has small barbecue grills you can use, so why not make a day of it - how about a splash pad and a picnic?
