New splash pad open at Balliet Park in Springfield

Place to cool down is the latest in a series of improvements at the park

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Just in time for the hottest days of summer, children in Springfield’s Pine Point neighborhood now have their own splash pad.

Children on Wednesday gravitated toward this latest improvement at Balliet Park, and neighborhood parents couldn’t be happier.

“The kids in the neighborhood have been looking for something for a while,” Naomi Deslongchams of Pine Point said. “They usually just come around and play ball.”

“I think it’s good, because the kids can come out and play- not only for the school and after school- anyone from around can come,” Anthony Rauls of Pine Point said.

Still more Balliet Park improvements are on the way. Work has begun on a new basketball court for neighborhood children.
