Groundbreaking Ceremony for Goodrich Square Splash Park

Mayor Frazier and the City of Milton Common Council are proud to announce a public ground breaking ceremony for the Goodrich Square Splash Park. The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. at the project’s site, located at 400 Parkview Drive in the City of Milton.

The Splash Park project is a part of the City’s long term redevelopment plans for Goodrich Square and demonstrates our elected officials’ continuing commitment to make value enhancing investments in the more than 130 acres of our City’s parks. The Goodrich Square Master Plan was approved by the Council in 2010 as the City sought to redevelop and aggressively market our City’s historical landmarks and specialty businesses with complimentary park attractions that will draw people to the City of Milton. The splash park is a family friendly new park amenity containing ten different interactive water features on a concrete pad with surrounding benches and landscape that possess a historic theme to promote Milton’s rich history. The park’s plan and amenities were developed with input from school age children throughout the City of Milton and a citizen led Goodrich Square Steering Committee, who meets regularly to analyze and promote potential redevelopment projects in Goodrich Square.

SAA Design Group developed the design of the Splash Pad, and the Council awarded the project’s construction contract to Advanced Building Corporation at their regularly scheduled meeting on April 2nd.
