The hot Texas summer just got a little cooler with the city’s announcement that Splashville will open this season after all.

Stephenville’s only water park is set to open June 15 with modified hours and programming that will be announced at a later date.

“We are looking to open a little later this summer, and offer a senior and a sensory hour for the at-risk population,” said Jennifer Basham, the city’s director of community services.

There will be no group swim lessons this summer, but private lessons will also begin June 15.

Here are more details about the city’s plans for the summer.

• The city is still planning to host the annual Fourth of July parade. The Rec Hall is now taking entry forms.

• The Stephenville Public Library is now open, but limited to 25% occupancy.

• There will be no summer sports leagues, including swim, track and adult softball.

• Registration for fall youth leagues like flag football will begin in July.
