The grand opening for the new attraction will be held at 10 a.m. Fox Park is next to the Molalla Public Library on Molalla Avenue.

The Fox Park Splash Pad will contain all sorts of water features to thrill kids and give them a chance to cool off in the summer heat.

“I think it’s pretty incredible,” Rogge said last week.

The plan was for the city to repair and upgrade the existing splash pad located near the library, with the work was contracted to be done earlier this spring.
