Fitchburg to open Splash Pad
The City of Fitchburg, in partnership with the Fitchburg Optimist Club, announces the grand opening of the McKee Farms Park Splash Pad at noon on Friday, Aug. 16.
The splash pad was conceived and set in motion by the Fitchburg Optimist Club with strong support from Mayor Shawn Pfaff, the Common Council, the Madison Community Foundation and Dane County. After many years of planning and fundraising, the splash pad is now a reality.
The 5,000 square foot facility is based on a farm theme with spray amenities including a tractor, windmill, various animals and a red barn that houses restrooms and the mechanical system. The Optimist Club raised approximately $250,000; the City pledged $235,000 and Dane County contributed $250,000 for a total project cost of $735,000.
All are welcome to attend this free event at McKee Farms Park.
