The heat is on - and the Splash Park design is approved
6 Jun 2019
If plans keep rolling forward, you'll be cooling off in the puddles at the new Splash Park in southwest Wadena, just north of the wading pool later this summer.
Wadena City Council members heard the Wadena Park Board had agreed upon a Splash Park design, at a cost of $108,000 during a special council meeting May 28.
A splash park is a playground like area covered in sprinkler-type features that spray water over a large pad without any deep water areas, meaning children, or adults for that matter, can wander freely through the area getting sprinkled with water without the need to swim. This particular design will feature 15 spray features for toddlers, families and teens to enjoy. It's also handicap accessible.
The project estimate was $105,000, but this design was more attractive to the group.
