Greenwood plans to overhaul the former Pool Park at Lincoln Street just off Market Plaza in Old Town.

Corporate sponsors will help Greenwood remake the park where the city’s pool once sat.

Huntington Bank is donating $25,000 to a project that would 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.

Greenwood also is lining up two more major corporate donors, who also would contribute $25,000 each to overhaul the Old Town park. Sponsors will get prominent name recognition at the revamped park, but the city is still determining what that will mean and whether that should include a sign or names on the facilities, for example.
