Update: Hessel Park Construction has begun, and is divided into two phases.
Phase 1—completion goal by late fall 2016
This phase will consist of constructing the new playground just south of the existing playground and splash pad.
Phase 2—completion goal by spring 2017
This phase will consist of constructing a new splash pad where the current playground and splash pad are located. The goal of the new splash pad is to be compatible with the recently created Douglass Park Splash Pad. This way features and functionality can be interchanged seasonally keeping the experience fresh and new for the kids.
