Morgan City is set to begin construction next week on the splash pad at Riverside Park. The city has been raising funds for more than a year and is continuing to do so. Many of the splash pad features have been sponsored by local businesses and some of the construction work has been donated as well. The city has had donations from groups of mothers and grandmothers as well as many residents from all over the county. They city has also conducted fund-raising activities throughout the last year such as selling hot dogs at last year’s Independence Day Celebration. The city has raised the funds necessary to begin construction, but is still requesting donations to provide funding for additional water features as well as benches.
Construction will begin next week and will cause some disruption to park usage. Please remember to stay out of construction areas and to ensure that children playing in the park also remain clear of the construction areas. The city plans to have the splash pad completed in time for use this summer. For questions on park usage or to request information on donating, please contact the Morgan City offices.
