The South Dundas Community Playground Committee achieved its initial aspirations when the South Dundas Community Playground was built in Morrisburg’s Earl Baker Park in 2011, but the group still has even grander aspirations.
“The ultimate goal would be to celebrate the beginning of summer 2014 with a grand opening for a Splash Pad,” the committee noted in a recent letter to South Dundas council.
To that end, the committee is collecting data from area splash pads in Brockville, Cornwall and Long Sault and pursuing potential funding opportunities.
By this summer, the group hopes to have a report on the timing, construction costs and operational costs for such a project to guide planning and fundraising.
Once the report is ready, the group will begin discussions with South Dundas council regarding use of land, funding contributions and the potential of including a washroom facility.
