Ready to make a summer splash
A NEW water play park for children in Ammanford is set to cause a splash this summer.
People power has paid off and work has now started on the splash pads, which are replacing the disused swimming pool in Ammanford Park.
It is hoped it will be completed in time of an official opening in June.
Almost 200 schoolchildren wrote letters calling for the facility, and 544 signed a petition backing the project.

At this month's Ammanford Town Council meeting county councillor Colin Evans said the work had started.
He said: "They have dug out the old paddling pool, but they haven't been able to do more than that. The weather has been against them."
A company called SSP Water and Play will be carrying out the work.
Ammanford Town Council will lease the land for the play park from Carmarthenshire Council.
At the town council meeting clerk Miriam Phillips said: "I think we should all be absolutely delighted with this project. It has taken a long time to come to fruition."
Ammanford town councillor Wendy Evans said: "There are some children who cannot afford to go out of Ammanford so this is for them."
A task and finish group has been set up.
