Public can learn about spray park plans on March

The feasibility study to determine what it would take to turn the closed Memorial Park swimming pool in the city into a spray park is nearing completion.
Because of that, a public meeting on the study is set for 6:30 p.m. March 18 at the city building. Pashek Associates of Pittsburgh was hired in October by the city to do the study.
The $17,000 study was paid for with funds from the Support Our Spray Park group, which was formed in 2005 by Broad Street Elementary School teachers attempting to save the pool.
The Butler A.M. Rotary Club approached the group in September to kick-start the initiative by having a feasibility study done.
“We wanted to help get this project going forward,” said Dick Musko, club member.
The club has helped organize similar projects in the past, including playgrounds at Alameda and Armco parks.
Musko said the Rotary Club and the spray park group have twice met with leaders from the city and Butler County to discuss the study with Bob Good, the Pashek Associates representative doing the study.
Those involved include representatives from city council, the city redevelopment authority, and the county parks and recreation department.
Musko said the meetings have been encouraging, and said the project seems to be a realistic option.
