Ribbon Cutting, Celebration to be Held for Riverton's New Western Springs Park Playground Equipment and Splash Pad

 Unknown Image RIVERTON, UT – A ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration will be held for the new Western Springs Park playground and splash pad on Thursday, May 24, at 6:30 p.m. Adults and children alike are invited to come celebrate the opening of the brand new equipment. Riverton City will be providing hot dogs and snow cones for the first half hour for those in attendance. The park is located at 4570 W 12790 S in Riverton.

“We’re thrilled to be opening the new playground and splash pad at Western Springs Park,” said Sheril Garn, Riverton’s parks and public services director. “It’s a great addition to the park and the local community. We hope the community will come celebrate with us on May 24.”

Parents are encouraged to bring their children dressed to play on the splash pad and new playground equipment that evening. Mini beach balls will be provided by the city for children to keep and play with.

Riverton City assumed operational responsibility for the park in 2017 from Salt Lake County. Many improvements have been made since that time, in addition to the new equipment, including: new benches, new trees and painted restrooms.
