The splash pad in Trion is about to get a bit safer.  Rusty Brown with the Trion Rec. Department told WZQZ News on Monday afternoon that the town’s splash pad is going to get a protective coating sprayed on the concrete splash pad to make it more slip-resistant.

The slip-resistant coating is expected to be applied starting around 7 AM on Tuesday morning and will take some time to dry before it is ready for use.  Brown said that the splash pad will be closed from now until Wednesday, August 14th.

The splash pad is open from 10 AM – 9 PM Monday -Saturday and from Noon until 9 PM on Sundays.  Rusty Brown says that the pad will remain open for the summer and will close sometime after Labor Day this year.
