Ozark, AL (WTVY) The renovations and expansions to the Kidzone area at Steagall Park are finally completed.
The updates took nearly a year to complete, three months after the tentative opening date that was set for June 30th.
The park, located at Steagall Park, off Faust Avenue, opened to the public on Friday, Septermber 2nd.
The new and improved area features new and improved playground equipment, a restroom area, and a splash pad.
Director of Leisure Services, Steve Sherill, says this project was a long time coming.
"Over the weekend, we figured there was probably anywhere between four and five hundred from Friday through Monday who came in.. it's getting well used. We're excited," said Sherrill.
The splash pad will be open daily from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
It will close on September 30th for the winter months until April.
The play area is open year round.
