Update provided on Splash Pad project in Lansing

As part of its appreciation to thank the 100-plus contributions made to the Big Splash Project, the Lansing Park and Recreation Board reports that the donor recognition sign for the project is being created and will be sent to the manufacturer in the next couple weeks. Anyone who is still contemplating making a contribution to the project should send it to the City of Lansing, P.O. Box 470, Lansing, IA 52151 with the words “Splash Pad” in the memo section.

The splash pad equipment has arrived and the majority of the plumbing is complete for the project. Once the concrete is poured and a shelter for the controller and manifold is completed, the equipment will be installed. Park and Recreation Board officials know the season is getting late, so they have planned a ribbon cutting ceremony to take place next year when the weather begins to warm up.

New wood chips are being placed in the playground area adjacent to the splash pad area to prevent a large amount of sand ending up in the splash pad drains.

“We appreciate all who have contributed and all who have been patient with the installation,” shared Arlen Wonderlich, Project Fundraiser and Consultant on behalf of the Lansing Park and Recreation Board.
