City holds public forum for proposed park 'splash pad' | Community Spirit
Madison officials will hold a public meeting this week to discuss a proposal for a Reindahl Park "splash pad" project.
Madison Parks will hold the meeting to hear public input Tuesday at 6:30 at Sandburg Elementary School. A splash pad is a aquatic play area that has no standing water, making it safe for public use without need for lifeguards.
The splash pad at Reindahl Park would include more than 2,500 square feet of interactive water toys like fountains and spray toys, according to a Madison Parks statement. The facility would be free and open to the public during the summer months beginning in 2014.
The proposed splash pad is one of several developments Reindahl Park will see in the next five years, including new landscaping and additions to the athletic facility, the statement said.
