Makes my blood curl. Don't get me started. If you want to sit out of the sun, move a table into the shade under a tree. The old tables are not nailed down. I still want the waste of money called a splash pad to be in full working order. I didn't ask for a concrete slab. Oh I can keep on going on and on and on.......

Such a waste of money. Not a surprise from Wayne County. Again they don't do any research and fail to plan. We don't need a concrete slab there. It would have been a great addition to the park.

The splash park was an excellant idea. I was just there Sunday with my grand daughter. She was dissappointed that is wasn't done. She is 7 years old and looking foreward to the splash park. What a waste of time, money and energy. The 4 or 5 picnic tables that are there look silly. Don't disappoint the children and parents and park visitors. Shame on POOR PLANNING.

I agree with the previous comments. Total waste of money providing something not needed or wanted by the tax payers. In their attempt to save face, County officials just embarrassed themselves furthur. Incompetence...what a shame.
