splash pad project began in 2006 as a result of the Leadership Whitley County
class. Two years
later, on July 5th
2008, we were able
to open the splash pad for the Columbia City community. A total
of $220,000 was raised to make this project possible. One of the exciting
features about the splash
pad is that the area around it is completely handicapped accessible. Water
wheelchairs are also available
for anyone to use if they are interested. Contact the Parks Department for more
information on how to
get access to the water wheelchairs.
If anyone would
like to make a donation to help
cost of the water usage, donations can be sent
