Those hoping to beat the heat can now visit the Hoquiam Spray Park, which opened June 28. The park will be open every day from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
The spray park is located at Art Pocklington Central Play Park, and park renovations were recently completed with a $10,000 donation from the Hoquiam Rotary Club to finish a picnic shelter. New benches for the park were donated by the Hoquiam Lions Club.
The spray park was built with about $300,000 in grants and donations. A formal ribbon cutting will be held later this summer.
