The spray park at Riverview Park opened Saturday afternoon with a dedication ceremony that recognized Summerfest's $68,000 donation with a plaque naming the new park in the volunteer group’s honor. Park funds were used for $167,000 of the cost. The spray park transformed an unattractive and unused area between the basketball court and the playground, said Rancho Murieta Association President Jim Moore in his opening remarks. Once Moore cut the ribbon, a crowd of kids surged forward and water began flowing to the rings, bucket, mushroom and other park features. Music played as RMA staff and board members cooked hot dogs, spun cotton candy and made snow-cones for everybody.Read more » about Video/photos: Party for new spray park
