City Awarded $148,500 Grant to Fund Splash Pad in Piccadilly Park
The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation awarded the City $148,500 to help construct a splash pad in Piccadilly Park, which is located across the street from the Middle School. The 3,000 square foot design features a toddler zone with mushrooms, flowers, and water bubblers; a high use zone with water rings, water tower dumping bucket, and ground jets; the teen zone has water cannons, dumping buckets, and ground jets. The design also features a grassy (artificial turf) shade area by the toddler zone for observers who want to be close but not get wet! Construction is anticipated in 2017.
Residents can contribute to the park through the Pave the Path to the Park brick program. Bricks can be purchased for as low as $50.00, include a personal engraved message, and will become a part of the hardscape surrounding the splash pad. Forms can be obtained on the City website at www.middleton.id.gov or picked up at City Hall.
