Avas Splash Pad opens July 27

Avas Splash Pad is a memorial tribute to young Avalyn Shaye Bright who passed away three years ago due to complications following a tonsillectomy. Since that day, Avas family has worked tirelessly to create the Avalyn Shaye Foundation which raised more than $80,000 to contribute to this splash pad which will bring so much joy and laughter to the children of Mt. Juliet.

Avas Splash Pad is an amazing contribution to Charlie Daniels Park. Its an honor for us to celebrate what a wonderful child Ava was and to carry her memory on for her family and the community, Parks Manager Rocky Lee said.

The event is free and open to the community. Water activities are recommended for ages 5-12, but everyone is welcome. Anyone under the age of 18 MUST have their legal guardian sign a waiver in order to participate.
