During the Play Xenia process, the City reached out and asked citizens what types of park and recreation improvements they would like to see. One of the most-requested amenities was a splash pad, otherwise known as a sprayground. It's a zero-depth area filled with interactive water sprayers and fountains. Splash pads are sought-after in many communities, and Xenia will soon be fortunate to have one!
Xenia Station will be the site of Xenia's first-ever splash pad, along with a newly revamped and relocated dry playground and an improved bike path connection to the Ohio-to-Erie Trail. These amenities will be located near the caboose and shelter at the east end the park, replacing part of the parking lot. Click the images below to learn more!
Double Jay Construction has been selected as the construction contractor for the splash pad, playground and bike path connection. Construction is scheduled to begin by August and be finished during the fall of 2016.
