In late 2015, the city turned on the new Vidalia Splash Pad, a water feature in downtown that is sure to make quite a splash with children and families. The park surrounding the pad provides shade and seating and is walking distance to shops and restaurants. The splash pad is activated by a push-button control built into the gently sloping bowl area surrounding the water outlets. Press the button and enjoy a three-minute program of various heights and sizes of mini-fountains from tall and short and from inside and outside rings of outlets that are also lit at night.
A great way to keep cool in the hot summers of South Georgia. The splash pad is open daily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
