Splash Pad Receives Final Funds From Texarkana Rotary Clubs
The Texarkana Rotary Clubs are excited to help out the Spring Lake Park Splash Pad.
The Texarkana Rotary Clubs made their final payment on the $255,000 Rotary Splash Pad project that opened at Spring Lake Park in 2012. The four Rotary Clubs came together in 2012 and initiated the project, promising to pay the City of Texarkana, Texas back for costs related to the project. This January, the groups fulfilled that promise by returning the full amount to the city.
Clubs involved in the Splash Pad project include Wilbur Smith, Sunrise, Oaklawn, and International. Corporate sponsors for the project include the Cabe Foundation, Capital One Bank, Fay J Companies, Lifenet, Texar Federal Credit Union, Texarkana Chamber of Commerce, DPG Partners and Red River Credit Union.
City Manager John Whitson, Andi Darby from Townsquare Media and Kelley Mitchell represented the Rotary Clubs of Texarkana. They presented the check to Robby Robertson, who is the City of Texarkana, Texas Recreation and Wellness Director.
