Rochester is finally jumping on the splash pad bandwagon.
Thanks to Wendy Zent and her sister, Andi Lee, the park board approved the Rochester City Park having a splashpad.
The idea originally came to the sisters last summer, but Wendy says they didn't start taking action until this past April. Now the details are starting to fall into place. The splash pad will be located in the center of Rochester City Park and will be open to the public, free of charge.
Although Wendy is hoping the splash pad will be ready by the summer of 2022, no dates have been set in stone yet.
Right now, the biggest focus is getting donations. FEDCO is handling the money and donations. For those wanting to make a donation, checks can be written to FEDCO, with 'Splash Pad' in the memo.
Several community fundraisers are starting to pop up around Rochester as well.
