The Splash Pad at Cloie Creek Park in Our Town Asbury opened in 2018. It's as popular is it is rare- it's the only one in town. But for one civic-minded nine years old, something about this hot spot wasn't quite right.
Asbury is a community where parents feel safe raising their kids, but not many people who live in Asbury work there. So two moms who wanted to stay home with their kids decided to create their own in-home businesses.
After a $1 million renovation with funding from several foundations, there will be new seating and lighting with a life-sized checkerboard in the center courtyard and dance chimes. It will also feature internet access, security cameras and new sidewalks to make the park available to everyone.
