CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi City Council will vote Tuesday on entering into an agreement with Nueces County to build a splash pad in West Haven Park near the intersection of Cliff Maus Drive and Rockford Drive.

If approved, the park will see improvements including a splash pad.

The proposal says the construction costs for the project will be at or below $370,000, of which the county will pay $200,000 and the city will pay up to $170,000.

The city will also be responsible for the installation of water and wastewater lines and permits with the money coming from the community enrichment fund.

If approved, it would be the fifth splash pad in Corpus Christi and the first in the Molina neighborhood.

No timeline for construction has been listed on the proposal.

The city council also is scheduled to vote on improvements to Salinas Park today.

That park is located on Airport Road and Horne Road next to the Gabe Lozano Golf Course.

The proposal includes replacing the existing walking trail surface, which will cost more than $69,000.
