UPDATE: A splash pad debuted to the public Saturday as the City of Daphne held a grand opening Saturday at the entrance of the Daphne Sports Complex on Park Drive.

Mayor Robin LeJeune explained how they incorporated Daphne into the project.

“We’ve got, of course, the Jubilee City, so we got a jubilee theme. We got crabs spraying water. We’ve got a dolphin tail. We’ve got fish dumping water out here at the splash pad,” he said. “So, uh, just come down, the hours are from 10 to 7. So, uh, come down and enjoy just being a part of the community and being together and all the things Daphne has to offer.”
