JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) — Designs for two new splash pads within City of Jamestown parks are in the works. 

The Mayor’s Office, Department of Public Works, Parks Department, and Planning Department met Friday with consultants hired to create concepts at two sites: Allen Park and Jackson-Taylor Park.  

Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist first hinted at the idea last fall. 

“I often hear about bringing a splash pad to Jamestown from so many residents looking for fun, free, and wet activities in the hot summer months,” said Sundquist in a statement. “Due to community feedback, we have decided that building splash pads in two of our biggest parks, Jackson-Taylor on the Northside and Allen on the Southside, would be the best way to give families a wonderful amenity in close proximity to their neighborhood.” 

Officials say more information will be presented to the public soon, with residents, especially those with children, asked to provide feedback. 

If all goes well, the new splash pads could open sometime in 2023, with the administration expecting to bring a full design and cost-out to City Council for a vote.
