BUFFALO, N.Y. — Ten splash pads across the City of Buffalo are scheduled to open this weekend just in time for Memorial Day.

According to Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, 10 of the city's 11 splash pads will open on Sunday, May 29.

The Kensington Park splash pad will officially re-open to the public after being closed last summer for repairs. Meanwhile, The Allison Park splash pad on Reese Street is scheduled to open in early June after some repairs are made.

"I’m excited to announce all 11 splash pads will be open this season. Our splash pads, which are located throughout the City, are very popular with families seeking a free, fun, and cool destination for their youngsters during the warm weather months," Brown said.

When the Buffalo Public School year ends (on June 23), the splash pads will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Labor Day.
