Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 11:30 a.m., Mayor Jon Mitchell will join with staff from the Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD), Parks, Recreation & Beaches, and the Department of Public Infrastructure (DPI) to celebrate the completion of a new interactive water play feature at Ashley Park in the South End of New Bedford.

OHCD awarded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding to the Department of Public Infrastructure to make improvements to Ashley Park. DPI created and installed a fun, interactive splash pad water play feature at the park. The 26-foot diameter splash pad features a surface fountain displaying ten dancing water jets designed for children to enjoy. The project was completed in July and is enjoyed by residents, children and visitors who are seeking a fun way to escape from the heat during the summer months.
