The History of the Splash Park

(Posted November 25, 2017)

A splash park is coming to River Rouge’s Memorial Park next summer, thanks to a Community Development Block Grant.

The announcement was made Wednesday by Wayne County Executive Warren Evans and River Rouge Mayor Michael Bowdler.

The county recently awarded River Rouge a $300,000 grant as part of its CDBG demonstration project program to complete the splash park.

“We’ve been through some tough times at River Rouge, and it’s nice to be able to have a project the whole community can enjoy,” Bowdler said. “Memorial Park is at the heart of the city. It’s a perfect spot for families to come and enjoy each other and the outdoors, and this will only add to that experience.”

Construction of the 5,200-square-foot splash park is expected to start in the spring and be completed this summer. It will be located in the north end of Memorial Park, near Great Lakes Ave., with easy access to restrooms and pavilions for picnics. It will be maintained by city employees and will not require any additional full-time personnel.

The splash pad is expected to have three designated areas — for young children to teens as well as a family area —that will allow children a safe place to play. Initial plans are to have the splash pad activate when a user pushes a button with an automatic timed shut-off to make the splash pad more interactive while reducing water waste when not in use.
