Killeen Cool Down

Record temps in Killeen all summer long has everyone looking for ways to cool down. A splash pad offers one of the best ways to get outdoors, have some fun, and splash around without overheating.

According to a news release from the City of Killeen, final repairs to the splash pad were completed last Friday. Unfortunately, repairs for the pool at Long Branch Park won't begin 'til September 12 and will take several days to complete.
