The Baldwin County School District announced in April of 2021 the construction of a new splash pad at the Early Learning Center, but due to the weather and COVID-19, the construction was delayed. We are excited to report that construction has started with a completion date of October 2021.
A splash pad is an outdoor recreation area for children that allows for water play in little to no standing water, keeping the threat of drowning to a minimum. Splash pads often feature spray nozzles coming out of the ground and shower attachments that release water from above. They are seen as ways to introduce children to the water before they swim in a pool or larger body of water. The students can cool off, have fun, and be safe. Stay tuned to upcoming news on phase two of the splash pad project.
