Splash pad to be installed at Medina park in August
MEDINA – A new splash pad with five ground spray elements should be installed at Pine Street Park in Medina in mid to late August, Village Board members said.
The board last week approved allowing the Pine Street Park Project Committee to buy the splash pad equipment. When it is installed, the splash pad will be given to the village.
The five elements for the splash pad is expected to cost $46,750. The committee is working on fundraising for about $200,000 in upgrades to Pine Street Park. The members include Tom Hungerford, Bob Sanderson, Maureen Sanderson and Nicole Goyette.
The splash pad will be the first of improvements, with a new playground and a butterfly garden to follow.
The splash pad will be 30 feet in diameter and water will circulate out to water plants and trees.
The splash pad will be installed after the village’s summer parks program, which is at Pine Street Park this summer and continues until Aug. 6.
The installer for the equipment is currently backed up with other projects and can’t work on Medina’s until later this summer.
