Work on the Hyde Splash Park will begin soon.
According to the City of St. Joseph, park-goers will see barriers placed in the park to allow the construction to start next week. Lawhon Construction is the contractor for the project.
Visitors to the park will still have access to its many amenities. The baseball complex and tennis courts will be accessible only through the west park entrance. Exiting the park will be via a one-way lane out of the east driveway.
Funding for the project is through the 2019 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) half-cent sales tax which was approved by voters in 2018. The splash park is scheduled to be open for the 2021 summer season.
