D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - D'Iberville now has its first splash pad. City leaders gathered Monday for the ribbon cutting at Kaboom playground.
Both the city and Harrison County teamed up to pay for the pad, and to save on contractor costs, county and city employees built, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars.
D'Iberville Mayor Rusty Quave says its something that benefit the entire community.
"It feels good because this is something that we really needed for the young folks in the community," said Quave. "Mom can come out and walk the walking track and get her exercise in and the kids can get wet and have a good time."
The project was partially funded by financial donations from people across America following Hurricane Katrina. Leaders say they're planning to build two more splash pads in the near future.
