The new Kacie Jane Park at Lytle-Five Points and Crosley roads in Springboro opens to the community at 10 am today. The splash park was installed last summer, but the new Kacie Jane Playhouse playground is now ready for kids to slide, swing and play. Look for three new play areas: one for little ones 2 – 5, and one for kids 5 – 12, and an accessible, interactive electronic playground system surrounded by musical sensory elements with eight games. The park also includes a picnic shelter, tables and restrooms.
Park hours are 10 am – 8 pm daily.
Following Gov. DeWine’s Responsible RestartOhio plan, the City’s reopening plan for the park includes:
• Encouraging everyone to maintain social distancing
• Recommending all participants wear masks, though not required
• Placing hand sanitizing stations throughout the park
• Cleaning and sanitizing restrooms on a regular basis
The park, named in memory of Kacie Hausfeld, was made possible through a generous donation from the Hausfeld families. Kacie and her father Tom Hausfeld were killed in 2010 in a private plane accident.
