Boomer Lake Splash Pad Opens!

The City of Stillwater invited the community and families to the grand opening of the Boomer Lake splash pad Thursday, May 26 at 11 a.m. at Boomer Lake Park.  The turnout for the event was huge as families and child care organizations turned out to experience the first splash!

The special event began with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The water was turned on for children to start using the splash pad by 11 a.m. and a hot dog lunch was served shortly after

“We are grateful to our donors for generously funding these projects for our community,” Mayor Gina Noble said. “Many residents have shown great interest in having splash pads in Stillwater, and we’re excited our area children will get to enjoy them for years to come.”

Construction of a splash pad at both Boomer Lake Park and Southern Woods Park was made possible by donations from the Stillwater Medical Center, the Stillwater Community Foundation and the Stillwater Masonic Lodge. The City of Stillwater was responsible for the construction of the splash pads.

“Stillwater Medical Center is pleased to have the opportunity to donate the splash pads to the City of Stillwater,” Stillwater Medical Center CEO Denise Webber said. “As an organization, we are committed to not only giving back to the community, but to providing healthy lifestyle options for our youngest residents. The splash pads will offer relief from the upcoming summer heat and provide a free outlet for families to spend time together.”
