After some setbacks, Lions Splash Pad was tested for the first time today (June 26). The photo below has about half the jets on. There is a button in the concrete that when pressed starts a 4min cycle, causing the water jets to turn on and off in a choreographed pattern.
We still have some work to finish up the project. The entire area will be backfilled, dressed with topsoil and have sod installed. Additionally we need to finish up the brick walkway with donor bricks. We are still accepting donations; we are currently at $79k of the $80k needed. Any extra donations will be used to renovate the nearby bathrooms. The Grand Opening is a few weeks away.
