The new and improved Forest Hills Park is ready just in time for summer fun. The city of Charlottesville officially re-opened the seven acre park Saturday.

The park has undergone a $1.4 million renovation. It now features picnic shelters, two new playgrounds, a basketball court - and a 6,000 square foot spray ground.

Brian Daly of Charlottesville Parks and Recreation said, "Our hope is that this becomes a magnet for everybody in the neighborhood and in the community - to come enjoy the park and enjoy the wonderful vistas."

The public spray ground is said to be the biggest on the east coast. It's free to the public and will be open every day through September.
