Splash pad could open in June
Hillsboro city employees are installing new water lines across Washington St. at Grand Ave. for a splash pad months in the works.
City administrator Matt Stiles told council members last week that work on the first phase of the splash pad was nearing completion and a plaza could open in the 100 block of S. Washington St., south of city hall, in June.
A fundraising campaign soon will be launched in hope of meeting an $80,000 challenge grant to cover remaining costs of building the splash pad.
The splash pad is being paid for by donations, with the city performing some of the work.
