GRE Spiritwood Station donates $50,000 toward campaign for Splash Park
Great River Energy Spiritwood Station is contributing $50,000 to Two Rivers Activity Center’s Building Community Campaign to construct the outdoor Meidinger Splash Park.
The park will include a bathhouse, three elevated water activity stations with four slides, multiple fountains and splash zones. There will also be a multi-use court for basketball and pickle ball as well as sand volleyball courts and bocce fields. In addition, there will be a large grass space for free play.
Great River Energy’s contribution will be directed toward the Discovery Stream, which includes interactive weirs encouraging collaborative and mindful play for all ages and ability levels.
“Great River Energy values its partnership with the community of Jamestown and looks forward to the addition of the Splash Park to provide recreational opportunities for local residents,” says John Bauer, director of North Dakota generation, Great River Energy.
The Splash Park will be part of Two Rivers Activity Center, which is owned and operated by the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department. The overall campaign has a $3 million goal. Officials broke ground for the Splash Park on Aug. 26. Construction is underway and plans are to open in May 2021.
“Jamestown Parks and Recreation and Two Rivers Activity Center are grateful to organizations like Great River Energy that prioritize supporting needs in the communities they operate in," said Amy Walters, facility manager, TRAC. "With each donation we receive, we become that much closer to our goal. We thank Great River Energy for making a difference in our community.”
