Cooling off around the Heart of Florida is becoming easier, with Belleview to officially open the Wilma Loar Splash Park, named after the former city commissioner who championed it nearly 10 years ago.  The splash park is near the water tower and a short walk from Lake Lillian.  The Belleview Police Department will be hosting a free cookout on a first come basis as the park opens at noon.  Gainesville's Depot Park will also host a splash pad one it opens next month. Known as the Blue Grotto, it includes water cannons and hidden fossils donated by the Florida Museum of Natural History.  It will join the Cade Museum, trails and bike paths once it opens August 1st with a grand opening set for August 20th!
