ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- With record-setting heat all through Memorial Day weekend, pools and splash pads were the place to be.

“This definitely feels more like Fourth of July or Labor Day weekend,” said Brian Bacyinsky, recreation superintendent in St. Peters.

Normally on Memorial Day, people are usually just dipping their toes in the water. But Monday kids and adults packed the brand new water park in St Peters to cool off.

“It’s extremely hot but we’re here!” said parent Gabie Bruce.

The park, an oasis in the holiday’s near-100 degree heat, was resident’s tax dollars at work. It was all paid for with Prop Q money, a measure approved in 2016.
