The Celina Board of Aldermen has officially selected Donaldson Park as the location for its proposed splash pad.
Mayor Luke Collins said the city has approved a $3,500 contract to survey the land.
“There is a lot of discussion that still has to be done,” Collins said. “I’ve visited the splash pad in Livingston and Monterey to kind of get us a scale.”
Collins said once the survey is complete, the Army Corp of Engineers must approve the project. Celina currently leases the park from the organization.
“For them owning the property, it takes longer and it is more expensive,” Collins said. “It would be great if the city owned some property that it could do its own park and playground.”
Collins said the proposed site is on the hill between the two playgrounds at the park. Collins said an additional pavilion for the splash pad is also included in the plan.
Collins said he anticipates the survey to be completed in a few weeks.
