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. Construction has begun and the Splash Park is scheduled to open in May of 2021. We invite you to learn more about this project by reading our FAQ below.
Jamestown Parks and Recreation and Two Rivers Activity Center invites you to become a permanent part of the Meidinger Splash Park project by purchasing a personalized brick to border the main pathway leading to the park. Purchasing a brick is an easy way to leave a lasting family legacy on this project and at the same time donate to the Meidinger Splash Park.
The bricks will be installed in the Spring of 2021, and will create a beautiful border along the main pathway to honor our local citizens, family members, friends, veterans, pets, etc.

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.
Site plan for the Meidinger Splash Park. The site will include a bath house, water features to include three elevated 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.
