RICHLAND, Wash.-- The City of Richland has just secured funding for a water splash and spray park at Badger Mountain Community Park.
The city received a $190,000 grant from federal Land and Water Conservation Funds. The City of Richland matched the money for a total of about $380,000 for the project.
Senior Park Planner, Dave Bryant, says the splash park has been in the plans for nearly a decade and is glad to see it materialize. As far as details go, Bryant says, "It's just under 6,000 square feet and Badger Mountain Community Park, being really a sports complex- little league, football, lacrosse, and soccer, we've put a sports theme to the spray area." Bryant says there will be 19 different water features.
The city hopes to break ground in late August- early September and have the park open by the time it gets warm again next spring.
