Donation will aid in overhaul of former pool

Another big company has signed on to help Greenwood revamp the downtown park where the city’s pool used to be.

Measuring-device maker Endress+Hauser is contributing $25,000 to help transform the former Pool Park into an attraction with a splash pad, a small sledding hill, trails and playground areas. Huntington National Bank also has pledged $25,000, and the city expects a third founding sponsor also will contribute $25,000 to overhaul the five-acre park.

The city has pledged $300,000 in tax dollars to the project but is pursuing corporate gifts in a park for the first time with the hope of opening it sooner, city attorney Krista Taggart said.
