Welcoming The Warm Months With Lakeside Park's New Splash Pad

Port Huron's Lakeside Park looks a little different this year.  With help from the city, grants and donated funds the park is in the process of a $500,000 facelift. One of the major new things people will notice is the brand new splash pad.

Yesterday, city officials held the ribbon cutting for the splash pad. In this video, Mayor Pauline Repp discusses where the park, which is home to the city's most popular public beach, has been and some of the great things that are planned for its future.

The splash pad itself pays tribute to the Blue Water Area with structures that resemble the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse and the Blue Water Bridge.

New benches, shower stations and landscaping are some of other projects that are also happening at the ADA compliant park.

City of Port Huron, Fort Gratiot and Port Huron Township residents can buy annual parking passes for $5. Residents from other parts of the county can pay $35 for a year or $5 per day. For Out-of-county residents it's a $10 daily entrance per vehicle. These passes are available at the park's entrance booth.
