FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- The City of Fitchburg welcomed Friday a new addition to the McKee Farms Park.
The unveiling of the 5,000 square foot 'Splash Pad' attracted crowds from Dane County and beyond.
The project took nearly five years and over $800,000 to fund. Currently, the group who proposed the facility, The Fitchburg Optimists Group, is still raising the remaining $95,000 to complete the pad.
"I hope the community gets that working together, getting things done, we can make sure we have a better community," said Mayor Shawn Pfaff of Fitchburg.
City officials say the spray fixtures are meant to resemble a farm, which is a symbol of Fitchburg's history.
Community members hope this is a place for fun in the generations to come.
