Construction Set to Begin for Spray Park

Lawrenceburg will soon be home to a new spray park at the American Legion Park as construction is set to begin in a few weeks.

During the Lawrenceburg City Council meeting, Mayor Goodlett announced that the city is finally ready to begin construction of the park that has been in the works for a number of years.  After numerous applications, the city received confirmation at the end of 2015 that they would be receiving a grant to build the park.

However, according to Mayor Goodlett, there were issues with the grant process that delayed construction of the park last year.  However, those issues have now been resolved, and city engineer Monty Rhody explained that they will begin leveling the ground for the concrete pad in a few weeks.

For the design, the city received seven different proposals for the park.  The park will be a type of water park for kids and residents where water features can be activated with a push of a button, and sprays of water will rain down on those near the water feature.

Mayor Goodlett explained that they decided to choose the design with the most amount of water features in contrast with the concrete pad as developed by Water Odyssey.  The park will be divided into four quadrants, with each part independently upgradeable.

The park will also be very accessible for those with handicaps.  “It will meet the needs of all children.  We are trying to inclusive of children with any kind of special needs,”  Mayor Goodlett said.
