City and Kiwanis Partner to Provide Splash Pad

Splash Pad

     Beginning this summer, Hudson children will have a fun new way to beat the heat. The City of Hudson and the Kiwanis Club of Hudson have partnered to create a new splash pad at Veterans Way Park.

     The splash pad location chosen for its proximity to downtown Hudson, restrooms, parking, shade, and a pavilion.

     The project originated with the Hudson Kiwanis, whose members approached the City about the club’s desire to donate to a sizable project for the City’s children. Club members discussed ideas with City administrators and ultimately decided on the splash pad. Kiwanis will make a substantial monetary contribution toward the project the $200,000 project. The City will pay for the remainder of the cost, and will pay for ongoing maintenance and repairs.  

     “The Hudson Kiwanis is thrilled to partner with the City on the splash pad project,” said Tom Semple, the club’s immediate past president. “We were in a position to take on a new, large project. The City’s proposal of a splash pad was exciting to the club’s leadership and meets the mission of Kiwanis. We all look forward to seeing the project being built this spring and know that the City’s children - and their parents - will enjoy having it.”

     “As a Councilman, one thing I hear a lot from my constituents is that they value Hudson's charm and the investments we make to create an inviting community for our families. This splash pad will be a place for our community to come together and enjoy our City and each other. I look forward to seeing my fellow Hudsonites out there!” said Councilman Casey Weinstein.

     The 1,874-square-foot splash pad will feature 12 in-ground mount sprays in a variety of designs. In the future, shade structures may be added around the splash pad.

     Splash pad construction is expected to begin this March. The grand opening is currently scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.

     The Hudson Kiwanis has for many years supported the community through its involvement in youth baseball and basketball programs. It has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to public and private schools in Hudson, as well as to other community causes and events, such as scholarships and Kiwanis Safety Town.
