What is the purpose of this project?
Update current playground equipment
The current playground equipment at Handy Andy Park has safety concerns due to its age and condition. It also has limited ability to entertain several families at once. The new playground equipment will be safer, is designed to accommodate more children at once, and is also designed to entertain a broader range of ages.
Put a splash pad in near the new playground equipment
A splash pad will be a fun addition to the community, providing a fun space for little ones to explore and cool off in the summer heat. Splash pads also tend to bring in visitors from other areas, which we hope will benefit our local businesses and become a pride of our town.
Add additional park features
In addition to new playground equipment and a splash pad, we hope to raise funds to add fencing around the play area, place educational signs about history and wildlife throughout the park, plant new trees, and work with the DNR to create a safe walking path along the river from downtown to the park. All very exciting things!
