Temperatures soared above 85 degrees on Saturday, leading many to take refuge in the cooling outdoor splash pad at Rotary Island at Rock Creek Park. The third annual Rotary Day took off with a splash as children and adults of all ages donned bathing suits and flip flops to cool off and play in the refreshing water, which sprayed from five above-ground sprayers and six ground-level sprinklers. Small children held bottles to catch the water and others laid on top of the sprinklers, trying to stop the water from shooting out.
