TOPEKA (KSNT) – With temperatures starting to warm up, many residents are left wondering when the local water features will start to open.

KSNT 27 News spoke with Shawnee County Parks and Recreation spokesman Mike McLaughlin about when locals can enjoy water parks and splash pads again. He said pools and aquatic centers, including Lake Shawnee’s Adventure Cove, will open Saturday, May 27 this year. Spray parks will also be opening on this date as well.

When asked if there would be any projects or renovation work that might push the opening date back, McLaughlin said they should all be wrapped up by the time Memorial Day weekend rolls around.
