Having a Blast

With temperatures in the upper 90s, the spray pad in Evergreen Park has been the place for youngsters to cool off. Here, 4-year-old Caleb Allen, left, moves off one of the jet sprays, allowing a stream of water to hit the back of 6-year-old Isaac Rose’s head. The spray pad will remain open at least through Labor Day. If temperatures remain warm after the holiday, the facility will remain in operation until conditions cool.
