RELATED: Family donating $1M for Springboro-Cleacreek park
In appreciation, members of the Hausfeld family are donating a total of $1 million over five years toward the park. The city and Clearcreek Twp. governments are pitching in to cover other costs of the park at the southwest corner of Crossley and Lytle-Five Points roads, in Clearcreek Township.
The splash pad opened last year.
The $700,000 second phase includes three playground areas: one traditional playground for children 2-5 years old, one for those 5-12 years old and a playground area with interactive games and “musical instruments,” according to City Manager Chris Pozzuto.
While work is to be completed soon, Pozzuto said the parks will open depending upon state guidance on how to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.
“We are hoping that the entire park (including splash pad) can be open sometime this summer, but of course we are waiting for additional guidance from the state,” Pozzuto said in an email.
Last week, Lori Hausfeld expressed excitement about the opening.
” I have had a lot of people asking me when it will be complete. Hopefully soon!” she said in an email.
“I think of Kacie every time I drive by the park. I know her carefree spirit is there. She would have loved it. I hope she’s proud of what we have done”.
