A new spray park will feature eight spray grounds of varying heights and pressures in Braselton Park.

A new spray park is coming to Braselton thanks to a $100,000 donation from Jack Frost.

Frost, who owns the Memorial Park Funeral Homes business, lives in Braselton and said he wanted to contribute to the water park.

It will feature eight spray grounds of varying heights and pressures in Braselton Park, according to the bid response sheet provided by Jennifer Scott, town manager.

The project doesn’t have an end date in sight, but Scott said the mayor and town council recently chose national company Lanier Plans DBA KorKat Inc. as the contractor.

The company has one location based out of Carrollton and specializes in playgrounds, spray parks and other outdoor equipment.

After a review of each proposal, the town chose KorKat because its proposal offered the most spray zones. It will design and deliver the new water spray park seven weeks from when the order is placed, and it will take another eight weeks to install.

Braselton started seeking a contractor and put out its proposal specifications in late December and gave companies until Jan. 30 to send in their proposals.

Other proposals came from Aquatic Management Inc., Bliss Products & Services, Great Southern Recreation, and Splash Zone.
