The 22nd annual Lion’s Falling Leaves Golf Tournament will be held at the Edison Club on Monday October 2, 2017. All proceeds will go to local community projects including the Lions Splash Pad.
We realize everyone has been anxious for an update on the status of the splash pad. Unfortunately we encountered some unexpected construction delays that impacted our targeted opening. Nobody is more disappointed than us that we missed the 2017 season; however, we are committed to completing the project. We are working through the issues to reach a successful conclusion as quickly as possible. Thank you to everyone who has supported this project and please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for updates.
On a positive note, some progress has occurred with the project over the last month. A local artist donated his time to create a colorful mural on the bathroom building which will be a nice backdrop for the Splash Pad. Phil Shaw is an art teacher, muralist, and comic book artist whose work can be found in large scale murals in downtown Albany (including the Hudson River Gateway underpass and the Albany Public Library), the Albany International Airport, and various bedrooms and nurseries around the Capital Region. He teaches K-4 art at the Henry Johnson Charter School in Albany and has published an online comic since 2000. His comic, “Sacred Pie”, is free to read at www.sacredpie.com and is also available in print on Amazon.
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.
