Splash Park Could Be Open This Summer

Fundraising is almost complete for an all-inclusive water park in Cody.
A 6000-square-foot splash pad is set to be installed at Mentock Park in Cody by July or August, according to spokesperson Doug Weedin, who presented updates on the project to the Cody City Council last week.
The idea has been tossed around for over fifteen years, according to Rick Manchester, Parks and Recreation director for the City of Cody. But in the last year, the project has gained momentum, primarily because of funding from local foundations and boards, as well as private donations.
The Splash Park will have eighteen different water features, and will be all-inclusive, having been designed with people with disabilities in mind. Matt Leonhardt with Pryor Mountain Engineering told the Council that the Park will also be self-contained, with the water being filtered and recycled within the facility itself.
This weekend’s Spin Cody event at the Paul Stock Aquatics and Recreation Center will be raising money for the completion of the splash park.
