The Bristol Park Board has spent many months in planning for a splashpad for Cummins Park. The new site will feature various kinds of water sprinklers in a children’s recreational area. Bristol will join a growing number of area communities that have installed similar attractions.
On July 30 the equipment was delivered from the manufacturer and a new well was drilled near the splashpad site, behind the Elkhart County Historical Museum. Bill Smith, the owner of Rec Source, Inc., from whom the equipment was purchased, will oversee the installation of the new water playground area. Current plans call for the splashpad to be ready for use by the end of August.
The Bristol Town Council has approved $107,000 for this project, which includes the splashpad equipment, installation, a new well, and electrical work. This will be one of the largest expenditures by the Bristol Park Board in a long time, and should be appreciated and enjoyed by Bristol’s children and their parents for years to come.
