Splash Pad Update

We received an update letter from Recreation & Park Dept. Director Greg Orner regarding the Whitmore-Bolles Splash Pad.
Below is the text of the letter:

As President of the Southwestern Outer Drive Neighborhood Association, I want to make certain that you and the members of your organization have the latest information concerning the planned capital improvement project the Whitmore-Bolles.

We're now in the final stages of preparation for a late spring ground-breaking on the new splash pad and adjoining comfort station, made possible by a $218,000 Wayne County Parks Millage Allocation Grant, secured with the help of Wayne County Commission Chairman, Gary Woronchak.

While the specific site of the new splash pad has yet to be fixed, it will be located in the same general area of the park as was the old swimming pool.

Depending up the spring weather and other components of the construction process, we are hopeful or opening the facility sometime before the end of the summer.

If you or your members have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Gregory S. Orner
Director, Dearborn Recreation & Park Department
