WATERTOWN, S.D.–A ribbon-cutting was held today to mark the opening of Watertown’s newest park.

Foundation Plaza is located on Kemp Avenue, just south of County Fair Foods.

The park’s name is in recognition of the Watertown Area Community Foundation, which provided a half-million dollar grant toward construction costs.

The park features a covered stage, a splash pad, playground equipment for the kids, eating areas, and lots of gathering space covered with artificial turf.

Mayor Ried Holien…..

Holien says Foundation Plaza will be a busy place between city-sponsored events and private use….

Today’s ribbon-cutting included a free lunch served by local service organizations and sponsored by the Community Foundation, and free ice cream, courtesy of the Watertown Police Department.
