A local lake is now officially open for the 2014 season.
Lake Stephens kicked off their year today holding a grand opening including a ribbon cutting ceremony. The celebration focused on the completion of three newly constructed cabins and a brand new paintball park opening on May 1st. The Raleigh County Recreation Authority is also planning on building a sprinkler splash pad park pending funding. Board chairman Bill Roop says there's a lot going on at Lake Stephens.
"There's a lot of new events, new amenities here at Lake Stephens that we're offering not only to the citizens of Raleigh County but to whoever will come and enjoy."
The park will be open for five months with its beach opening may 24th.
