Editorial: Greenwood hopes to set bar with new playground

Greenwood has big plans for remaking the park where the city’s pool once sat.

The city plans to transform the five-acre park off Lincoln Street into an attraction that would include a splash pad, a sledding hill, walking trails and playground areas for both younger and older children. The city’s goal is to have the splash pad open by this summer, so local children don’t have to go another summer without anywhere to play in the water.

The splash pad area will be about 1,500 to 2,000 square feet and feature streaming jets of water. The city still needs to determine exactly what features it would have and whether it would, for instance, include mushroom showers or overhead buckets that dump water.
