I hope this splash park will be for. Chesterfield/new baltimore residents.and also that residents must still buy their. Yearly park pass for $10.00and a discount for seniors as I'm sure not to many seniors will use the splash park.but it will be great for resident kids.

@ Christine Azar - I live in Richmond and grew up in Chesterfield. My family has had our family reunions at Brandenburg park for 30+ years, maybe more. Not one of us still reside in Chesterfield. Non-residents fish off the pier, dock their boats, have picnics, play on the playground, etc. What difference does it make if the splash park is only open to residents?

If it is open to the general public and not for residents only it will most definitely be overcrowded. In my experience other splash parks/pools in other cities are for residents only so why should this be different? I'm hoping very much that it is for residents only!

Richmond has a Community pool that is open to residents and non residents. Non residents pay a slightly higher entrance fee. I believe that the Splash Park should be the same way.

In addition, Richmond has a capacity to keep it from becoming overcrowded, just like many other communities.
