LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - With summer heat starting to roll in, the people of Jeffersontown are about to get some relief to help them stay cool. A new splash park is being built at Skyview Park.

According to the city of Jeffersontown, the vision of the park is to provide families in the community with an additional amenity at the popular Skyview Park. The park, located at 2700 Watterson Trail, is already home to softball, baseball and football fields, a picnic pavilion, children's playground and recreational trail.

The splash park will contain 2,200 square feet of play surface with 26 water features that will entertain all ages. In addition, a retention basin is being constructed to recycle water that will maintain the turf of the park's ball fields.

Skyview Splash Park is expected to open by mid-June.
