Berran said by the first of April the Splash Pad foundation work will be done and once the Splash Pad equipment is in it will be put together. He said the goal was to have the Splash Pad operable by summer.
The new splash pad is part of the OSLAD (Open Space Lands Question and Development Program from the Department of Natural Resources. The splash pad is supposed to be completed by the end of May.
Berran is overseeing the project as it evolves, then Park and Rec Director Chris Logan will take command once it is built.
