On Monday, Webb County Commissioners Rosaura “Wawi” Tijerina and Jesse Gonzalez announced funding for two splash parks in rural areas of the county.

Webb County received a $250,000 grant to build two splash pads in those towns.

The one in Bruni will be located right next to the school while the one in Rio Bravo will be set up next to the community center.

Commissioners say this is the first time that the county will be building water parks for the outlying areas of the county.

No word yet on when the construction for those parks will begin.
