McDonald Splash Park

A fun water playground for our community.

Splash Pad

Project Summary

Project: J.T. McDonald Children’s Park, also known as the “Kiddie Park”, will undergo upgrades and improvements. The “Kiddie Pool” will be upgraded to an interactive splash park.

During the construction window, the Town’s Public Works and Special Projects Departments will be managing the upgrade as well as several notable enhancements throughout McDonald City Park, including replacing the shade structure and adding age-friendly benches, way-finding signage, and allocation of accessible parking spaces to allow for functional ADA compliance.

The Town was initially awarded a $75,000 grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Local Government Grant Program. Since then, the Town received additional funds; the Collins Companies Foundation awarded the Town $200,000 and the Pacific Power Foundation donated $2,500.00 in support of the large art mural installment. Artist Maizie Langum finished painting the mural this past August. The Town is thankful for the two awarded grants and the donation; this project would not be possible without their funding.
