We love Splash Park. I do think the admission cost is too high - if Rec Swim is also going on, it's $5.50 adults and $4 kid, with no resident discount. If no Rec Swim also, it's only $2, which seems reasonable until you realize that other cities with similar parks (Oakland, among others) don't charge admission at all. I wonder if this was covered in the grant the city received to build it.
