New splash pad opens in South Bend


Kids had a chance to play in a new splash pad in South Bend.

The Pfeil Pfountain was dedicated to the Potawatomi Park and is now open to the public. The Potawatomi Park project began in 2007 and representatives from the city are excited for this new addition.

"A lot of kids either don't know how to swim or don't have access to a pool and splash pads are an incredible way of interacting with water. All kids love water and it's a great way of interacting with water in a really safe environment," says Christopher Nanni, Vice President with the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County.  

Wednesday, kids stood by waiting for the water button to be pushed for the first time.
