It is hard to imagine kids splashing around in water on a cold day in December.
But that was the case in Elkhart.
The city broke ground on its first ever water playground.
The New McNaughton Spray Park is part of Mayor Dave Miller's City for Life program.
The 1.5 million dollar project will cater to about 200 kids under the age of 12, and feature different islands and play equipment. "We're looking forward to opening our spray park, the first one in the city Elkhart on Memorial Day 2007," says Superintendent of Parks and Recreation, Karin Frey.
The new spray park replaces the McNaughton wading pool that closed a few years ago.
Of course, the weather was not exactly cooperative for Monday's Ground Breaking Ceremony.
In fact, the ground was so cold one of the shovels broke.
