JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Parks, Recreation and Conservation Commission will hold its September meeting Tuesday, September 3 afternoon in city hall and among the items to be discussed is the proposal to rename Chadakoin Park and also installing a splash pad in the city.
Last month the idea of installing a splash pad and renaming the park were both introduced at the August 19 Jamestown City Council Work Session. During the meeting city resident Wanda Cooper spoke to city officials about changing the name of the park to honor the late Isabelle Jackson and Lula and Vivian Taylor. She said the name of the new park would be Jackson Taylor Park.
During the same meeting, Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi made a pitch to the City Council saying Jamestown could open a splash pad similar to the one in Dunkirk if it is able to secure funding to pay for the project.
Tuesday’s commission meeting will take place at 5 p.m. in the DPW Conference Room “A,” 4th floor, City Hall and is open to the public.
