Smithville will be.
LAKE NORMAN KIWANIS SPLASHVILLE PARK
The splash pad at Smithville Park is approximately 1,300 square feet and is next to the baseball fields at Smithville Park. It is ADA accessible, near a picnic shelter (can be reserved), playground and restrooms. Children and families can escape the summer heat while playing in various interactive water fountains.
The Lake Norman Kiwanis raised $150,000 in partnership with the Town of Cornelius, the Cornelius Cultural Arts Group and from the Cornelius Jazz Festival as well as the SCC to fund the Splash Pad at Smithville Park. The splash pad itself opened in time for the Jazz Festival on August 20, 2016. Much of the credit for the Splash Pad goes to former Huntersville Mayor John Anarella and the Kiwanis Club who helped raise the nearly $150,000 needed for the project.
The SCC and families in the Smithville community raised $5,000 with funds from the Jazz Festival and individual contributions toward the building of Splashville Park.
Splashville Park and Smithville Park Design
The SCC gathered a group of local students from the Smithville community under the leadership of the Parks and Recreation director at Union Bethel AME Zion church to provide input and select a design for both the Splashville Park and the upgraded playground at the Smithville Park.
The SCC sponsored the Eudean Knox Little Free library in 2018 that is in Splashville Park.
