Port Edwards cuts the ribbon on new splash pad
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – On Aug. 10, the village of Port Edwards and MSA Professional Services (MSA) cut the ribbon on the village’s new community splash pad.
The recently completed 2,500 square-foot facility is located in Edwards-Alexander Memorial Park and replaces the village’s original pool that was constructed in 1948 and closed in 2014.
The facilities include an ADA-accessible splash pad with a variety of aquatic features, including a water power spinner, directional jets, butterfly-themed spray, foot-activators, jet streams, and a “spidey spray.” It also includes a new shade structure, drinking fountains, bike racks, benches, splash pad utilities, new landscaping, and an ADA-compliant crosswalk and curb ramp leading into the park.
MSA Professional Services, Inc. (MSA)’s Park and Recreation team led the overall park design, site, civil and utility engineering of the project.
The project was funded with a $500,000 grant from the Legacy Foundation.
