LIONS SPLASH PAD NOW OPEN. The Grand Opening for Lions Splash Pad occurred on June 30 with about 150 people to kick off the start. Thanks to our donors for making this project possible, particularly Maddie’s Mark Foundation.
The Splash Pad it is located in Collins Park (Scotia, NY), next to the brightly colored bathroom building which you can see it from Jumpin Jacks. The Splash Pad is on a timer and will only operate from 10AM to 6PM (times may extend later in summer). Stepping on the white buttons in the concrete will turn on the water jets for 4 minutes. The water jets run in a choreographed pattern. Simply press the button again to continue.
We will accept donations for the Splash Pad through the summer. Donors will receive personalized bricks. Donations in excess of the project will go to other projects in Collins Park – new water fountains, renovate the bathrooms, etc)
Lions Splash Pad is moving closer to being finished. The area is now graded and dressed with topsoil. Sod is coming Monday. Trees, benches and tables are next.
Grand Opening planned for Saturday June 30 @11:15.
Lots of changes at the Splash Pad…
We got the Splash Pad turned on for the first time and it looks good. The surrounding area is being prepared for new sod and trees and the new paver walkway was installed. Don’t worry if you don’t see you brick. There are about ~40 engraved bricks will go in early next week.
Grand Opening still planned for Sat June 30 at 11:15.
We are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of Lions Splash Pad on Saturday June 30 @11:15am.
Last week the concrete pad was poured and the project is starting to come together. We still have a few items to take care of in the next 2 weeks – finishing a paver walkway (with personalized donor bricks), complete landscaping (sod and trees), installing benches and picnic tables.
The Scotia-Glenville and Duane Lions successfully held their Spirting Clay Tournament on June 9. Congrats to the winners. We used the Lewis Class scoring system which made 3 sets of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Lots of chances to win even if you aren’t a great shooter.
