This summer, families should be able to go to a downtown Greenwood park and splash around in streaming jets of water.
Children could run through mist, get soaked by overhead buckets or hop all over a water frog feature. If they’re feeling adventurous, they could stand near a geyser or under the Big Gush Water Tower.
Greenwood has chosen a design and contractor for the splash pad it plans to build where the city pool used to be. The municipal pool had been at that five-acre park on Lincoln Street just west of Market Plaza for more than five decades but was shut down weeks before it was supposed to open last summer because of safety concerns, including a crumbling bathhouse roof.
