Feel The Love at Duffner Park City of The Village, OK
The City of The Village, OK is set to open its unique heart shaped Splashpad this summer. The Splashpad features the Super Splash as its central feature and includes a custom bucket with the Love’s logo. Other features include a Bucket Trio, three (3) Spray Loops, Water Tunnel, Sunspray, three (3) Water Cannons, Aqua Dome and numerous other ground sprays.
“The Village started fundraising for the Splashpad about 9 years ago by putting on a Fall Festival for children in our area. Over the last 9 years, the City managed to raise $45,000 from festival proceeds and from miscellaneous donations. However, we were a long way off until Love’s Travels Stops helped us to make this become a reality with an $80,000 donation. We can’t thank Love’s enough for the help in making this exciting project happen. The children will be beneficiaries of this new park and will finally be able to enjoy it starting this summer.”

East Side Park Splashpad, City of Osceola, AR
The Osceola Center for Arts and Heritage (OCAH) partnered with the Osceola Parks and Recreation Department to revitalize Irma Belcher Park in Osceola, AR. As part of the park upgrades, the park will include a Vortex Splashpad which includes 19 ground sprays and 10 above ground features. Features include a misting rainbow, raining Ombrellos, dumping flowers and buckets, water cannons, and the always popular Aqua Dome which creates a water effect similar to shimmering glass. Kids love to manipulate the pattern by placing their hands, body and face in the soft laminar water dome.
To help fund the Splashpad, the City of Osceola received an Arkansas Parks and Tourism Grant, which required a 50 percent match from the City. The Splashpad will be open later this summer.
