I have been working with the City on plans to have a splash pad installed at Deer Run Park. When I advised the community of these plans, some residents expressed concerns regarding the proposal. As such, I requested community feedback and asked for comments via email and a community meeting was held on January 26th for residents living near Deer Run Park.
The majority of residents supported the proposed splash pad, some concerns were still addressed regarding parking, traffic and the impact of the current park space. You can review some of those notes in an attached compilation here. For additional background information please also visit my past eNewsletter update available here.
Given that the majority response from the community was supportive of the idea, I will be pursuing the splash pad project moving forward. The City is hopeful that construction can commence over the summer for installation to be completed by the end of the season (in time to get some use by the community with warm weather).
