Riverview Park will be a busy place starting Friday with the annual Splash Day, the school's out celebration for all of our local students. The fun begins at 11:30 a.m. with North Augusta Public Safety providing the water from their ladder truck and the Adventure Camp staff working the giant slip-and-slide. The Riverview Park staff will be serving free hot dogs straight off the grill, chips and drinks for everyone. The celebration will last until 2 p.m.

Week No. 2 of summer camps at Riverview Park continue next Monday, June 10. The quiet halls of the Activities Center during the school days will turn into places of bustling activity as children fill the building. Summer campers will have lots of choices next week: Adventure Camp week No. 1, Cross Training basketball, soccer or cheerleading sponsored by True North Church. Adventure Camp is for rising first graders through rising sixth graders and runs Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at a cost of $100 per week. Cross Training camps are for children ages 6-12 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Monday-Friday at a cost of $50 for the week. Registration will be available as late as Monday morning before camps begin.

Please visit the city of North Augusta web site at www.northaugusta.net for a complete listing of all the camps offered for Summer 2019. You may also call our front office at 803-441-4311 should you have any questions.

Construction of the Riverview Park Splash Pad is in progress as the crew from Great Southern Recreation has been on site working on the infrastructure of the facility. We are still shooting for a mid-summer opening.

The Riverview Park Activities Center does not have any scheduled tournaments for this weekend so it’s a great weekend for our members to enjoy using the track, cardio room and exercise room. Plenty of gym space will be available for free-play basketball.
