CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The city of Cortland has put the finishing touches on a big attraction in the city.

A dedication was held Saturday morning to recognize sponsors who helped the park’s board build a splash pad inside the city’s Pearl Park.

The project was two years in the making and opened last year, but there was more work to do.

A new pavilion, benches and fencing complete the project, which was completely funded by donations.

City leaders, the park’s board and members of the community gathered to give their big donors a thank you.

“The entire facility was probably close to $100,000,” said Kevin Piros, Cortland City councilman. “So, $10 is nice, but those big sponsors, you need those to come through.”

The splash pads opens Memorial Day weekend and is open daily from noon to 6 p.m.
