CLEARFIELD — Summer heat and rising temperatures are just around the corner, so Clearfield has opened its Aquatic Center's outdoor "Splash Pad," 825 S. State.

The facility will stay open through Labor Day.

The outdoor area features tables with umbrellas where a picnic lunch can be eaten in the shade, as well as patio and sunbathing chairs. In this area, pool guests are allowed to bring in their own coolers with refreshments and food. Keeping in line with safety regulations, as well as maintaining a family environment, glass items and alcohol of any kind are not permitted on the premises.

The Splash Pad opens at 11 a.m. and closes after 7 p.m.
