Newly remodeled spray park in Billings opens

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

A newly remodeled spray park located in South Park has just opened to the public.

City council members attended the ribbon cutting ceremony today. Kids from the Friendship House, south side neighborhood task force, and various community members also attended.

Mike Yakawich of Ward 1 said he's really grateful for the city who provided the money to put this together. Deputy Mayor Larry Brewster said South Park is the oldest park in Billings and hopes to make it a destination park again.

"To recognize the importance of South Park and it's history is an importance of this part of town that sometimes is neglected and treated like it's a home for the homeless and people who've committed crimes and that's not what it is," Brewster said. "It's a family area and it's important to recognize that those families are important too."

Council Member Brewster adds there are other spray parks in the city, but this is the first recirculated usage of water at a spray park.
