Splash Park Unveiled in Cody
Written by wendycorr on September 13, 2019
Cody kids can really make a splash now.
Thanks to the efforts of the Cody Recreation Foundation, generous donors & project approval by City Council, the Splash Park at Mentock Park was unveiled Tuesday evening.
The soft opening of the water feature happened on a chilly evening, so attendance was light, but the attraction promises to keep kids busy (and cool) for years to come.
City of Cody Recreation Director Rick Manchester says the splash pad adds another feature to Mentock Park, which already boasts several attractions that keep kids and adults busy, such as a skateboard park, soccer fields, picnic shelter and an all-inclusive playground.
Manchester says the soft opening was meant as an unveiling to the public of a project that has been in the works for several years. But until the health department has a chance to give their stamp of approval, the water won’t be flowing until perhaps the 20th or 21st of September.
He says they hope to have a grand opening celebration next spring.
