MEDINA – Nevaeh Moss, 13, of Medina has fun on Medina’s new splash pad that opened for the first time today.
The splash pad is at the Pine Street Park off Park Avenue.
The new splash pad is among $200,000 in upgrades to the neighborhood park. A group of residents raised the money for the park improvements, which also includes new playground equipment and pathway that will include flowers and butterfly gardens.
The committee that raised the money and pushed for the project includes Nicole Goyette, Tom Hungerford, Bob Sanderson and Maureen Sanderson.
Cadence Livingston, 5, of Medina is thrilled with the splash pad. She was there at about 5:30 p.m., when the temperature outside was 90 degrees.
The splash pad is the first to open in Orleans County. The Village of Albion is close to opening a larger splash pad at Bullard Park.
Jaiden Livingston, 8, of Medina enjoys the new water attraction in Medina. She is holding on to the pole with a button. When that button is pushed, the water comes out of five ground spray elements.
