Fundraising continues for splashpad.

The Ludington Splash Pad Committee has raised $100,000 toward the Splash Pad Project to be installed at Copeyon Park on South Washington Ave. The expected cost to create the splash pad is $215,000, making fundraising for the project nearly halfway complete. All donors will be acknowledged on a tile or brick to be displayed at the Splash Pad. Thanks to generous donors who've kickstarted the fundraising campaign, all gifts will be "doubled" for a limited time using matching funds. For more information, or to make a donation, go to or Ludington Splash Pad on facebook.
