The construction of splash parks at Reindahl and Elver parks will be funded by a grant the Madison Parks Foundation received from the Evjue Foundation, according to a release.
Splash parks at Reindahl and Elver parks will include splash areas for toddlers, teens and families, officials said. The parks will be free and a way for families to cool off during the summer.
"Madison Parks is excited to offer kids and families more ways to stay cool during the summer," city of Madison Parks Superintendent Kevin Briski said in the release. "Spray parks are a wonderful complement to our public beaches and Goodman Pool."
Reindahl Park, at 1818 Portage Road on the far east side, is home to a major soccer complex, a reservable shelter, playground, basketball court, community gardens and tennis courts, according to the release. The splash park is among several improvements planned by the city, including athletic facility enhancements and new shelter landscaping.
