Splash Park

Meidinger Splash Park

We are in the final phase of our fundraising campaign to construct the outdoor Meidinger Splash Park.  Due to many generous donors and grant funding, we are two-thirds of the way to the three-million-dollar goal.  We intend to begin construction as soon as the goal has been met.

Outdoor Water Donation

Jamestown Parks and Recreation Foundation received a pivotal donation towards our first goal in Phase II of the Two Rivers Activity Center (TRAC) Building Community Capital Campaign in October of 2018.

 

A longtime resident of Jamestown, Shirley Rolfs Meidinger, was intrigued by the role TRAC plays in the community and wanted to help support the outdoor water project.

 

Because of this donation, TRAC was able to move forward with the planning and design phase for the Splash Park.

 

“I have been proud of the good works by my husband, and feel that now with this gift, we together leave our legacy of giving for Jamestown” states Meidinger.  Shirley and her husband, Roland, were active community members in Jamestown serving on many organization boards and service groups. Roland passed away June 4, 2006 and Shirley is currently living in Minnesota.
