Cobb is getting a splash pad just in time for summer

It may not seem like it, but summer will be here eventually. And you’ll have a new way to enjoy some Cobb County heat.

Kennesaw announced Wednesday on Facebook that construction of a splash pad has started at Swift-Cantrell Park, 3140 Old 41 Highway NW. The 42-acre park is Kennesaw’s largest.

A 2014 master plan for the park makes the case for a splash pad explaining that with little to no standing water the park can have an aquatic attraction with jets and games for kids to enjoy.

The attraction is expected to open in June, said Pam Davis, Kennesaw spokeswoman.
