Lynchburg, VA - The official start of summer is here but Tuesday it sure felt like we got a head start to the season. Some folks headed to the Riverfront Park in Lynchburg to cool off in the fountains. Several people there had quite the afternoon.
City officials estimate the fountains will see a lot of traffic in the coming months. The fountains will be on daily, through September. "We saw it yesterday as we were driving past, and some kids were out here enjoying the water. Tuesday was awfully hot, and we had somewhere to be at four, so we thought we'd stop by and enjoy the water ourselves, and cool off," said fountain visitor Katy Garber.
The fountains were built back in 2010. Parks and Rec says not many people use them. Not many people even know they're there! They want everyone to get out and take advantage of all parks as we start the summer.
