Corinth-Alcorn County Parks & Recreation Director Robin Baker is determined to bring a public splash pad to the community.
She has already applied for two grants and is looking for other funding opportunities as well.
Baker should know by the first of the year whether the grants she applied for will be approved.
Ideally, she would like to get around $150,000 because that would purchase a decent-sized splash pad.
Baker thinks a splash pad would be a very popular attraction for the community, and people could host birthday parties there. Picnic tables and pavilions could also be set up around the splash pad, she noted.
It is uncertain where the splash pad could be located, but Baker said parking and water connection logistics would be factors.
She is hopeful that a splash pad can be established in the next couple of years, and possibly be open in the summer of 2020.
Selmer, Tenn. has a splash pad, which some Corinth residents visit.
