Many kids spent Labor Day enjoying one last day at one of Green River's many beautiful parks before heading back to school Tuesday.

On Monday, kids from all over Sweetwater County were taking advantage of the day off and the 80-plus degree weather.

The Green River Splash Park, which was a favorite for kids and adults all summer long, was busy most of the weekend. Most were trying to get one last visit in before the splash park closes.

Since the Splash Park is right next to the Evers Park playground, most of the kids were having fun on both parks. 

Although Rock Springs resident Michele Weaver brought her kids to the Splash Park, they spent most of the morning laying on their towels sun tanning or playing on the playground. As the temperatures increased, so did the splash park's activity.

"This splash pad is a little bit nicer than the two in Rock Springs, Weaver said.

An added bonus is the great playground right next to the splash park, she said.

"It has a nice playground and the water feature," Weaver said.

For Weaver and her daughters, this was the first time visiting the park this summer, but she was glad they got the one visit in.

As for Stephanie Wimmer, she often brings her son to playgrounds in Green River.

"It depends on the week, we're either going to the park of fishing," Wimmer said.

They specifically visited the Evers Playground because of the dinosaur, which some kids call a dragon. It seems to depend on which the child prefers.

"My son's obsessed with dinosaurs," Wimmer explained.

With Labor Day known to be the last day of summer, kids and parents were visiting the parks as much as they could.
