The Shakopee Lions Club and Aquatix, a subsidiary of Landscape Structures, received City Council approval to construct an inclusive splash pad at Lions Park. The inclusive splash pad would be installed where the current sand volleyball site is, providing easy access to the Fun For All Playground without impacting other park amenities. Construction is scheduled to begin summer 2019.
Alignment to Community Priorities and Goals
This project fits with the goals and priorities of the community and the comprehensive plan by creating more recreation opportunities that enhance the quality of life of residents and visitors.

Aquatix plans to donate the play features and hydraulic water system ($50,000 value) while the Lions Club would provide labor and other construction materials ($20,000 value). The Lions Club has requested the city consider paying for water. The city is currently exploring options for water consumption.
The splash pad at Lions Park will provide summer recreation fun for people of all ages and abilities.
