COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - With a hot weekend in store, the Latonia Water Park/Splash Pad won't be able to keep residents cool. It is closed to fix the water filtration system.

According to the City's Neighborhood Services Director Ken Smith, the park didn't open as expected because of problems with the pump.

"This is terrible timing - believe me, we know," Smith said in a news release. "Residents should understand that we are doing everything we can to get the complex back open as soon as possible."

Normal hours are noon to 6 p.m., seven days a week.

It's unclear when the park will reopen. To see updates, you can visit their website.
