PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - A roughly $500,000 overhaul of Lakeside Park in Port Huron includes a new splash pad, restroom and concessions building.

Other improvements to the park at the southern tip of Lake Huron include landscaping, new benches, a drinking fountain and shower stations. A ribbon-cutting took place on Thursday and Mayor Pauline Repp says there’s more work to be done to improve the park.

Construction started last fall. The Times Herald of Port Huron reports (https://bwne.ws/27GS4qi ) officials say there’s a $2.5 million wish list that includes new walkways and a resurfaced parking lot.

The splash pad features structures that pay homage to Port Huron and local sites, such as a lighthouse and the Blue Water Bridge that connects the U.S. and Canada.
