"Eagle Mountain is looking to double a planned splash pad.
The city will spend $180,000 in the spring to build a splash pad -- a zero-depth water feature that children can run through and cool off during summer. In a recent meeting, elected officials voted to authorize the city to apply for a matching grant from the state. If awarded, the grant would effectively allow the city to double the size of the splash pad, adding extra water features and amenities.
The splash pad will have a western theme and will be built at Nolan Park, the location of the city's annual Pony Express Days celebration, she said. The Pony Express will be part of the western theme. The splash pad will compliment adjacent baseball and soccer fields."-Daily Herald
