The long-awaited Garrison Park opened quietly this week, but area kids were ready and waiting. Thursday, following a short day at school, kids patiently waited for the water to turn on at 10 a.m. There was a little delay in getting the water flowing, but everyone was all smiles once it did. Kids loved the big splash from the large water bucket in the center of the splash pad. City Manager Greg Wood says there are still a few things to finish up and a few details to iron out in the operations. The basketball court is closed until fencing is installed. The park at 542 Fourth St. will be open from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-6 p.m. Sunday.
